California here I come...Sausalito Art Festival - Labor Day Weekend!

My sculptures are a tribute to enduring life values in enduring stone. The one sculptor you’ll find at the Sausalito Art Festival who works in stone, I communicate some of life’s softest and most cherished concepts using some of the world’s most hardest of materials. All the while, it’s as if the stone is guiding my hand to release the spirit and intention inside.

chillin' and chiseling in Carefree...

As in year’s past, I’ve been juried into A-List art festivals around the USA. As in year’s past, art collectors are attending and taking home my spirited Shona sculptures. As always, I continue to use my hammer and chisel to sculpt new works from the stones I import from my homeland of Zimbabwe.

Right now, you could say I’m rockin’ in Carefree AZ as I create new works to take to the Sausalito Art Festival in California.  Held over Labor Day Weekend – September 2, 3 & 4 – and now in its 65th year, this prestigious waterfront festival has gained international recognition for its excellence in the arts.
