Artist Statement

Living my life with only partial vision has given me a different perspective of life, allowing sculpture to be the new language for me. Beauty expresses itself in all forms through sculpture. It is a vehicle for me to translate ideas and emotions of clients. Whatever the commission, sculpture allows me to leave lasting monuments for future generations.
