An early catalyst for the concept of designing memorial urns was the devastation experienced in the wake of the 9/11 attack at ground zero, notably in the void left not only in the cityscape, but in the hearts and minds of those left behind. Shortly thereafter, I too experienced personal loss of a loved one and discovered most existing cremation urns were unworthy of someone I cherished so greatly.
Having worked for two decades in graphic arts, I began to explore the fine art world and worked a number of years as a docent with extensive study of contemporary art at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. I employ these skills to create pieces with a depth of understanding and sensitivity to the subject. I seek out beauty in refined form and use of materials to create sculptural works of memorial art worthy of someone cherished.
