My trip to France for the ART TOUR INTERNATIONAL TOP 60 MASTERS OF CONTEMPORARY ART will live with me forever. My sculpture " Ange de l'espoir" was a success and the three esteemed judges chose me along with 14 others from 1200 to win the coveted award of the ATIM top masters.

There were so many unbelievable artists and they energy was electrifying. I made several friends and have hopes to see one another in future shows.

This trip wouldn't have been possible without the love and support of my friends and family who contributed toward my go fund me campaign. I SHARE THIS WITH ALL OF YOU and I will be forever grateful!

"Ange de L'espoir" began her journey a contemporary version of a duck. The wing was a clue as to what she would become. As I filed back it's beak, her angelic face emerged. The large breast of the bird transformed into her arms, cradling her winged child. This signifies the eternal, unbreakable bond between mother and child. Even during loss. The Angel of Despair rests upon a shaped cloud of Indian alabaster. The greys in the cloud give contrast and symbolize adversity, but it is overcome by the goodness and hope of the light. A magical moment that I had while sanding her face, was that a dark green tear emerged, running down her left cheek.
I truly feel the energy of the child that I had lost, guided my hands and helped bring her to life!

As well, small trinkets like necklaces, bracelets, crib boards, pick holders, key chains and small knickknacks.   As well, I am actual bear, coyote, lynx and wolf skulls too. Rest assured, that all antlers and skulls are bought or given to me legitimately.
