For me, sculpture is more than an art form. It is a connection to my ancestry, to history, and to the earth itself. It is an extension of my mind, imagination and dreams. The pieces I create are not perfect. They take a bit of me. I'm odd and I'm memorable, I love myself, and I love my work. Through my pieces I express my joy, my hopes, all of my experiences over the continuing course of my existence. Each piece is a piece of me, and when people see my work, I hope that they can feel a bit of the life I have put into it, and smile.
