Ancestral Voices is SOLD OUT!

A big thank you and congratulations to everyone who purchased Ancestral Voices.

cc-ancestral-detailCreating Ancestral Voices was a labor of love for me and a test of my patience! Of all the pieces I had sculpted up to now, this one by far has the most detail and movement.

Ancestral was inspired by White Bull, a Minniconjou Sioux warrior who played a critical role in the defeat of Custer. He is listening on the wind for the voices of his forbears. My sincere thanks to all of you who could hear them, too.

Over the next few months, I have some exciting new Native American sculptures planned. If you would like to be updated on these works-in-progress, please contact me.

“This was the perfect piece for our Arizona home.”

Congratulations to Lonnie and Linda Yates, the newest owners of Defiance.

I met the Yates family of Seattle at this year’s AZ Fine Art Expo in Scottsdale. They saw Defiance and it appealed to them as the newest addition to their Arizona residence.

“The defiant nature of this sculpture just seemed to perfectly epitomize the area where we live in Arizona,” says Lonnie.

My sincere thanks go out to both Linda and Lonnie for choosing my work for your collection.
