Einstein said: “More important than knowledge, use your imagination”. To that, I have added curiosity, invention and sudden flashes of insight that strike in the middle of the night. I have used every conceivable material from sticks and stones, and bones and bronze and aluminum and steel. When creating, I enter another level of being. If you stand back and watch me, you will see me constantly in motion, looking and working on all sides, at all times.
