ARTIST STATEMENT:

The Soul is Life.  Life is full of changes and contrasts such as day and night, light and dark, as well as concepts of growth,
development, emotions and time.  The soul therefore is the place of change.  When our souls are peaceful we can accommodate
change, initiate change and bring about meaningful change.hina—“Inseparable” Private collectors in Shanghai-China, Dubai UAE (Assorted small sculptures)
