Artist’s Words:
“Poppies” will always be near to my heart, as I used my first cousin, Julian, as the model. This allowed me to spend many hours with him, as I photographed him and sculpted, and having that time before he passed is precious. He had so much fun with the sculpting process and being a model, that I made up reasons to go meet with him. Then, when the sculpture was finished, he had a big party at the studio to show his friends and family what he had been working on with me.
