“To create an artistic expression from the materials around me that are already pieces of artistic expression, is the highest of honors. I have the opportunity to do this each day.
Opening my innermost mind to the visions not yet seen is ecstasy beyond words… to observe my hands molding metal into form and shape as if it were a massage… to watch it being textured and ground as if it were the Fourth of July… to cast paint and finish on the art is as if it were a dance.
Watching someone tilting their head, moving back, moving forth, and walking around to see it from all sides.
Oh what a glorious place I am in.”
