Ribbon of ​Hope
19" H  x  16" W  x  8" D
​Alabaster              

I had almost completed polishing up this sculpture when the phone rang. News from the Netherlands, a relative has Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

After a long conversation I returned to my studio to find that my sculpture had slipped off the workbench and onto the floor. Broken in half, I felt there was no hope for the sculpture.

How dare I give up I thought. I have to try to make this piece survive. So I placed a steel rod between the broken pieces as a symbol of hope.

I then mounted the sculpture on a rock that I felt symbolized 'cancer', a black jagged rock.

The Ribbon of Hope remains strongly held together while standing tall on top of its cancer.

Ten years later the relative remains symptoms free.

Random Thoughts and Core Beliefs
15"  H  x  14" W  x  8" D
Pyrophyllite


This sculpture was gifted to a dear mother and friend who put in countless hours assisting me to raise my children as we are both single moms of two daughters each.

I had the sculpture for sale in a gallery when she couldn't stop talking about it. 


Since there was no limit to her love for my children I decided to gift her 'Random Thoughts and Core Beliefs'. She as a VERY humorus woman, and had the same 'random thoughts' as me, and her 'core beliefs' were on dime with ours so I felt she deserved this piece.
The centre of the sculpture is the core (beliefs), and the 5 odd points are the random thoughts.


Vicky H, I could never thank you enough for putting up with my spawn. Thank you, sincerely, Michelle.

Sea Breeze
12" H  x  24" W  x  8" D
Brazilian soapstone 


      Sea Breeze is content and confident as she  cools off with a breeze of mist from the Sea.

       Like her long hair touching the sand, her  spirit is grounded. She is relaxed in body,  and whole in soul.

       A middle aged woman, accepting of who she  has become and peaceful in this very moment.

        With anticipation of every cool  wave, she is enthusiastic for the splashes of  her future.
Womankind
13" H  x  4.5 " W  x  5" D
​Pink Alabaster


Womankind symbolizes the strength I wanted to feel when I was enduring a divorce.

I sculpted her as therapy wanting to become stronger and stand tall like her regardless of her apparent rugged edges and missing pieces I too felt. 

Many years later I raised my children myself without any child support and here I stand, like a rock.

Motherhood
23" H  x  12" W  x  12" D
Soapstone

     As I sculpt out my future as an         artist, I find myself in the studio with   the baby monitor tuned to   my children's room. Their giggles   penetrate my heart  . . .  CONCENTRATE!  (I tell myself).

     The conflict between time on my artwork and motherhood is overwhelming.  As if surreal, effortlessly, my baby's face is carved out on the sculpture and 'Motherhood' becomes (obviously) a-Parent.

 A daughter purchased 'Grace'   for the top of her mother's urn.

     I've experienced pregnancy twice.         It felt magical knowing that I was           bringing a soul into this world.  I             knew I loved my babies before I             could even see them.     
         
     I wanted to sculpt this miraculous         experience in pink soapstone as it         is soft and feminie looking.     

     Now, I am constantly impregnating       rocks to keep up with the demand
     for  these, ha
