Artwork > Spirit Sailors

A life-long fascination with Australian Aboriginal culture and art merged into a body of work—carvings and paintings—called Spirit Sailors that continues today. The carvings and paintings are representations of American sailors lost in the Pacific during World War II who rise to the heavens above Australia to become stars.
