I once had a vision to serve in a might way, but it didn’t happen. My life was shattered due to an unforeseen marital breakup. As a result I was left with three adopted medically fragile sons with special needs. During that time, it seemed impossible for me to see this vision come to past. Over time, I tried to hold on to the vision to adopt more children. I couldn’t do it alone, I felt defeated and a failure. My compassion has been without compensation, and my openhandedness has been without reimbursement. And thou, the journey seemed to have been predestined and a hardship, I’ve smiled under the hidden tears. Until one day, I had a spiritual encountered. I was inspired to sculpt and use my hands as a platform to advocate, and encourage others to see the need for children to be permanently placed and adopted.
This body of work{BBC} is emotionally and socially driven.   The work I have created depicts emotional experiences of children removed from their home by welfare system for whatever reason. At this point, their lives are uncertain. But if there was such a magic wand, I would perform miracles of justice, peace and security for all children.  With my body of work, I hope I can inspire to secure a home for a child in need.
My esthetic is rough, dark, and textured, yet allows the viewers to define their own narrative.

Marjae L. Gilbert work embodies emotion. I coined a term called Loss Longing and Desire or LLD that expresses the emotions beneath the surface. Since, my work continues to evolve. No matter the series, I tend to explore the dark places with hope to heighten one’s awareness and sensitivity to pain and suffering in humanity.
