Having spent the last ten plus years combining wood, agates,
crystals, metal and light into creations that touch people's
lives, I'm more inspired than ever. When I make something
and it excites someone, and they "get it like I get it", it
moves me to new heights and makes me want to create more.
One of the wonderful side
benefits of going to art shows and selling my pieces is meeting
other artists, getting inspiration and new ideas from them, and
then trying these ideas and visions in my work. There are
so many talented artists in Southwest Michigan and I unabashedly
try to glean as much as possible from their creativity.
As I move further into a
second decade of creating wood sculptures, pendants, sun
catchers and walking sticks, I continue to be inspired from the
ideas of my friends and fellow artists and I strive to touch the
hearts of art lovers in southwest Michigan with my unique blend
of wood, minerals and metals.
