About the Artist
The natural world is my source of inspiration as a professional sculptor. I have adopted the motto: ""Trees can dance. Humans have roots in the soil."" Although fanciful, it signifies that my motivation is born from our species'' innate connection with Nature. Or as Thoreau put it, ""It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that makes the intellect fruitful, and gives birth to imagination.?
I ascribe to a common Native American belief that everything is alive and connected--and embodies a spirit. For the ancient Greeks, the spirit of a tree was represented in female human form, which they called a dryad. For me it is the dryad, a tutelary goddess and totem, which represents the highest embodiment of our oneness with nature.
