Hello, It is my honor and privelage to be able to live in these United States of America. I thank the armed forces for our freedom. That being said, I am able to do my arts in peace and harmony. I love to take the old and washed out drift woods I find Freely along the shores of the great lake Huron and make them into sculptures. I can look at a piece for hours sometime days trying to see what part of our Mother Earth wants us to see and share. I come from a family of native American, we are from the Sugar Island, Michigan, Garden River, Ontario There has been many of my relatives who make beautiful works of arts, very talented family. I thank my mother for her artistic eye and my father for his creative hands. I have always had the want to take something old and thrown out and shine it up and make it new again. I was raised by hard working parents, I have 5 brothers and 1 sister. My mother, father and 2 brothers have passed on. Our family remaining are all constricted with diabetes and heart disease as such we as native american have uncompatable systems untolerable to todays foods. Nobodies fault, just the way things are. I take what time left on this earth and pray that I can leave some beauty in my wake. I thank the Creator for gifts that he has given me and the ability to express for all to enjoy.
