"Indiginous Americans are peoples of the earth and I feel I have developed a dialogue with them as I recreate their stories from their history into clay and into bronze. I develop my ideas from researching books. Something I read will intrigue me and I'll seek out additional information and become so involved in that story that I will integrate it to my own rememberence. These stories allow me to relate to you my works."
