A multi-talented artist, she has won first-place awards in four different categories, at Santa Fe Indian Market: sculpture, painting, jewelry and clothing! Mother of five, and devoted grandmother, the artist has boundless love for both children and animals.
Here, that passionate affinity is shown in the playfulness of the puppies and the joyful laughter of the little girl. The unyielding stone seems to dissolve into warm squirmy fur and baby-soft skin, under her skilled touch.This is an artist who knows first-hand how children and puppies behave, and she transforms rough-edged rock into a timeless moment of delight.
Warm, smoothly finished wood contrasts beautifully with the translucent alabaster.The snowy-pale stone makes this piece very difficult to photograph. Please scroll down the additional photos at the right and click on them for close-ups.
