Lost in the dark
Vines binding
Thorns piercing
Laying dormant to lessen the pain

Sometimes there comes a moment
When a Luminary passes by
Revealing the hidden path of escape

In this fleeting juncture
They turn around
And they wait
To see if you’ll follow

And you must decide
Even though your body is weak from atrophy
And there are thorns in your feet
Are you brave enough to stand
And start walking
Even though every step forward must be your own

Do you have the courage
To embrace hope
And the audacity
To believe that you deserve better
Before the moment passes
And you slip into darkness once again

I am a sculptor and painter living in Wisconsin, USA. My primary media includes polymer clay, acrylic, and oil paint.

I love the feeling of creating new characters that didn’t exist before, like making new friends out of thin air. I’m literally creating my own joy out of a lump of clay and some paint. Sometimes I get lucky and a project takes on a life of its own…when this happens it really does feel like there’s magic in the room.

My past clients have included Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, Royal Tyrrell Museum (Alberta, Cananda), Burpee Museum of Natural History (Rockford, IL), private scientists and collectors. I'm currently on the roster of the online gallery Every Day Original, and can be found in several volumes of the Infected by Art publication.
