"The desire to create is innate and a part of my history. My father's grandfather was a carpenter and his wife a seamstress. Their daughter, my grandmother, was a seamstress and her husband, my father's father, a boat carpenter. My mother's father was a shoe maker and his wife a teacher. My father is a builder and my mother a crafter of all things. Everytime my hands create, I feel connected to the past. It is in these moments that I discover who I am because of who they were. My hands are theirs."
