The summer after my brother passed away, our family hiked twenty four kilometers up a mountain in Alberta’s Yoho national park. His ashes were scattered in the presence of beautiful mountains, pristine lakes and a loving family. As we neared the end of our hike, I felt a need to bring a part of it home with me. My brother was a geologist and as we both shared a love for rocks, there was no doubt when I spotted a beautiful rock on the walk down that this would be what I was bringing back to Ontario! Shortly after, it was transformed into a life sized duck for my gardens.
This sculpture has travelled with me to our new Bobcaygeon home and never ceases to keep a little bit of my past in the present. To me, art is a memory – a reminder of the many hours creating it and the many more hours enjoying it.

For those like myself, who have a rock that holds a special memory, I would be happy to create a custom piece to showcase it.
