“The creative spark for my pieces came from a request to make a bank for my young nephew, Titus. What sort of bank would he like? The question opened up a creative vein I’m still following. The story for these pieces is what the viewer brings to them. My nephew, Davis, looking at my pieces asked, “Where are they going?” For me, they are symbolic hero types; General, Warrior, Traveler, etc… Joseph Campbell wrote about the hero’s quest and the people the hero meets along the way that help him realize his dream. I keep them to a smaller scale to keep in touch with the impact a child has on our lives — small but powerful.”
