VIEW IN MY ROOM
As with many of my sculptures this stone was rescued from a discard pile. Occasionally I get to visit the "bone yard" of an industrial stone mill and the discards found there, while not useful for construction, are perfect for creative endeavors. With help from the manager, we dug this lone piece of grey stone out of the pile, negotiated a price and loaded it up. It took a few months for the stone to tell me what it wanted to be, and of course, it was not what I had been designing. If there is one thing I have learned from stone it is to respect the stone by listening to it. So I started to carve a purely abstract sculpture and along the way discovered I was carving the essence and spirit of the black bear, currently on the Texas "Threatened/Endangered" list. I find it intriguing that stone quarried from Texas and discarded as worthless, desired to represent the spirit of an endangered species. Nature works in mysterious ways.

Creating art as a kid = Yep College Degree in Fine Art = Yep Become an artist = hmmm, sort of, hmmm, not yet, hmmm Turn 50 years old = Yep, Let's Do Art!!!! Turn 60 years old - Yep, Why stop now? It took 50 years for me to be in a place secure enough to create art. After a small bout of homelessness in my 20's, I focused on an income in the corporate world. Then the corporate world, unceremoniously, spit me out in 2008. I turned my love of dance into my next career. So much joy came from this, I then turned my attention to art. I have been creating and showing sculpture ever since. Each day I dance and create art is filled with joy! Each day I share what I know with others about dance and art is filled with even more joy. My motto... Wake Up, Be Awesome, Be Kind, Bring Joy, Repeat
