"To create a reflective moment, in viewers hearts and minds, is the objective of my figurative sculpture. Forming likeness and character into "three-dimensional moments" is especially gratifying when it is personal and also meaningful for viewers of all ages. Witnessing my granddaughter's fondness for her kitten, I attempted to share the "reflective" moment with children and with other grandparents, while reminding them of their own childhood and the pet they loved."
