"As the Artist of Hope, my creative intent has always been to
explore and express the transcendent aspects of God, Life, Eternity and
especially the struggle between Light verses Darkness. My desire is to
inspire and enlighten people with fresh timely spiritual images that
embody timeless messages of faith, hope and especially Love. I create
visions like portals or passage ways, for the viewer to enter into,
through their eyes, into their minds, to then explore within their
hearts and souls. I am attempting to give my viewers a glimpse into the
unseen reality which lies beyond our natural perception. In essence a Glimpse of Glory!”
I am inspired by Ancient texts, including the Bible which has inspired many conceptual visions. Prayer and mediation, with the worship experience have given me a deeper view of life, and opened my eyes to see. Music is one of my greatest inspirations. I am fortunate to have many accomplished musicians as friends and collectors. The greatest inspiration is always Love! For me that is what it is all about... How we love the ones God brings to us here on earth. That is what counts!
I have been a painter for 50 years, with my BFA (Painting Major) from the University of Tennessee. I paint on canvas, primarily with acrylic and sometimes oils. My bronze Angels are the main sculpture line. Also there is my extensive inspirational Jewelry line that I've created over the past 20 years. We have seen hundreds of thousands of these symbols acquired and worn, taking my message of Faith, Hope, Love, Reassurance and Reconciliation all over the planet. My jewelry sells in the Dali Museum. What a gratifying legacy!
A very special highlight for me was when I visited with Salvador Dali at his Cadaques, Spain home (1979). It is especially significant now that my Jewelry sells in the Dali Museum! Another fond memory is of when I was asked by the families that lost loved ones in the Trade Towers on 9/11, to present one of my bronze Angel figurines to the NY Governor George Pataki, along the Patomic shore in Washington, DC.
Another honor was when the centerpiece photograph in the Smithsonian 9/11 Exhibit, was the famous photo of a girl wearing my Angel of Reconciliation Necklace while praying for America in the Union Square Park vigil the night after 9/11. These are a few remarkable memories that I am honored and humbled by.
