‘’I have been blessed with a great passion. I really love what I do and hope others see that through the works I have created. When you love what you are doing the real reward is in the experience of doing it. One of the best things in working with bronze it is such a strong, durable, and permanent medium. In the end it is not about how many years you lived in this world but what you leave behind that truly matters. All artist want to live on in their work.
