Symbolism of the Original Sculpture:
"THE BREATH OF LIFE - A' LUL' QUOY (DOLPHIN)"
"A' Lul' Quoy" is the Native American Chumash word for "Dolphin."
"The Breath of Life - A' Lul' Quoy" represents the Native American Medicine of the Dolphin. Dolphin is the Rhythmic Keeper of the sacred Breath of Life, guiding us in releasing our Emotions, and in using the Life Force through the rhythms of breathing. Within the Breath, we learn how to communicate the universal Language of Energy that all life emits. In this, Dolphin is our Link to the Great Spirit and teaches us to be aware of our health and feelings, listening to the natural rhythms within ourselves. Mostly, Dolphin reminds us to Breath.
Embedded into the sand: Genuine White and Red Corals – provides protection from evil influences and helps us find the beauty within. Sea Urchin Spine – teaches Tenacity and Patience. Mother of Pearl – attracts prosperity and heightens Intuition & Imagination.
*Gemstones do NOT come with the greeting card, but are mentioned as they are included on the Original Sand Sculpture to enhance the symbolism of the artwork.

As a Fine Art and Consignment artist for over 30 years, I work in a variety of mediums, but primarily work in Oils and Semi-Relief Sand Sculpture. I paint a wide range of subjects, but specialize in landscapes, oftentimes presenting my love of the mountains and the West through my scenes. Beyond the traditional landscape, many of my paintings tie history or symbolism together to create a story or emotional connection with the viewer.
I learned about the traditional Navajo sand art, commonly known as Sand Painting, from a Native co-worker when I was stationed in New Mexico in the 1990's. From there, I have developed my own signature sand sculpture style, which literally builds up upon the traditional technique. In respect for the origins of this art form, I have embarked upon my Native American Medicine Wheel series. In each sculpture I take an animal and attempt to help the viewer understand various Native American "medicines" through symbolism.
