Blind Faith Gallery Exhibition

“I am blind. I lost my sight when I was in my 20's. Through life casting, I create images that let me see and feel the faces behind the music that has become my passion. This project also allows me to participate in a dynamic creative exchange. Through life casting, I honor these musicians. I adore them and adorn them with plaster and wrap them up like precious packages. They are precious. Their contributions to American music are precious. These great musicians and their families deserve to see themselves in and be honored by our nation's museums while they are still alive.”
