"I have chosen to be a storyteller for my people, through the medium of sculpture. Within these images, I attempt to draw from the audience a range of thoughts, feelings and emotions stirring within them these same thoughts, feelings and emotions I have wrought into the work. I no longer speak my mother tongue yet I need to do my part in carrying on the stories, cultural myths, and legends and spiritual legacy of our people. My hope is that my hands and spirit within will allow me this one gesture."
