"I have always felt admiration to see women succeed and I applaud their determination and persistence. There are many stages to reaching and achieving one's goals in a lifetime just as there are many sides to women. I am particularly drawn to the quiet beauty of the garden, and clay is my connection to the earth. In my own personal view - we must choose to bloom. The flowers represent perennials, that bloom year after year to bring us hope, joy and comfort. My female sculptures are contemplative & enduring symbols of determination and optimism!"
