Nature's Prophet

John Muir sits upon a boulder in Nature's cathedral, his eyes alighting upon the wonders that have been the source of his daily inspiration. His mind races to find a way to put into mere words a way to describe what can only be experienced. Like the prophet Moses leading his people into the wilderness, so too has he come to free us from our troubles and tell us all...

"Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away
once in awhile to climb a mountain or spend a week
in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."
~ John Muir

John Muir inspires me everyday to be a better steward of the environment and to do my best to preserve and protect it and I would like to share that inspiration with others. I am devoted to keeping the memory of John Muir and his legacy alive in the best way I know how. Being an artist, this has been to create him in sculpture.
