“Willow Tree is not necessarily a likeness; it’s a way of conveying emotion… a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory that we want to touch, or see. I hope that people can recognize subtle expressions or gestures of those they love, and from that, be able to select pieces that are uniquely meaningful for them.”

Love ever endures
“I sculpted this piece using my parents as models. When I asked them to sit down and get comfortable, they just seemed to fit together so perfectly. It was such a self-directed pose, as though they’ve been doing it for years — and they have! They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2011. The carving on the back is a little added discovery …. ‘I love thee’. I like the sound of the word ‘thee’. It feels poetic and intimate to me."
