My copper sculptural works are symbolic representations of Native American spirit guides, particularly shamans that help with balancing our spiritual, emotional, and physical health. Zuni bears and bison are another series I create.
As caretakers of this planet, it seems to me we have much to learn from nature if we can observe quietly. When I am hiking along a trail, or kayaking through marshes, I become present in nature. It’s a calming and stress-relieving feeling to be in touch with nature. In my artwork, I create my impressions and remembrances of the feelings I had when alone with nature.
