I am a rural Albertan, woman sculptor. I had careers as a commercial pilot, overseas mission pilot in Papua New Guinea, took time off to care for my parents during their final illnesses, and I managed a provincial charity supporting family caregivers. I have seen and heard terrible things in my personal and professional life including deep grief, hardship, exploitation, discrimination and conflict. But what stands out to me now are moments of love, connection, comfort, sacrifice and courage –these inspire me. I paint and sculpt, using a variety of mediums including various clays, cold cast bronze, acrylic on canvas and others.
