It was a beautiful event at Mercy Hospital when we dedicated and the Sisters of Mercy blessed this sculpture.  I hope this piece will be a blessing to many who see it and may it be an aid in healing for years to come.

They’re gonna put me in the movies!

I’m honored to be featured in the latest Artist Spotlight Series production by Once Films, an award-winning film company that is having a ball making artistic films about St. Louis artists and artisans.  This film will premier on Thursday, July 10th from 5:30-8 pm at the Urban Chestnut Brewery in the Grove.  It has been a tremendous amount of fun getting to watch these guys do what they do, which, ironically is watching me do what I do.

Mercy Hospital honoring Catherine McAuley

This piece is about to be installed and dedicated at Mercy Hospital in Saint Louis after nearly two years of research, concept drawings, meetings and then finally the sculpture!  The sculpture depicts the life and ministry of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy.  This piece illustrates 10 different vignettes from her life, all incorporated into one scene.  The  setting is Dublin in the 1830′s and the pivotal scene shows her as she welcomes a distressed young (and very pregnant) mother into her newly built home on fashionable Baggot St., where the mother would find help, hope, and hospitality.

 

A “Fixer-Upper”

I have noticed an influx of great Chinese artwork lately.  This was not one of them.  I was retained to see if I could fix this sculpture destined for Belfontaine Cemetery.  In looking over photos of it carefully, I determined there was still a good sculpture inside the original one and I took the challenge.  The client is quite happy with the results:)
