This is Where I Live!
"I Live on a Lake"
Mission is a smal town approximately 45 minutes from Vancouver. As I live right on a beautiful lake, I have the best of both worlds! There are many, many wild animals sharing space with us. Eagles pick fish right out of the lake, bats, racoons, squirrels, swans, ducks, geese, and hte ocassional deer and very ocassional bear, come to play at the lake.
We are minutes to downtown Mission which has a population of 35,000.
"I am an Artist"
I work primarily in cement, although I also work in water based oils and acrylics. Currently I have been working for a year on my roof sculptures. A neighbor once described the former occupant of my home, saying she used to climb out on the roof to watch the stars. I thought 'what a wonderful way to think about somebody'. And one day I looked up at my roof and thought 'ROOF SCULPTURES!'.
And so here they are. We worked long and hard to get these completed and to have them up there on the roof looking so naturally happy with life in general. As the original molds were casts of my husband and I, I like to think they represent us symbolically.
