Artist Statement

As long as man has existed Amulets and Talismans have been used as tools and symbols of our desire to control our destiny.

For me the validity of the belief in magic is not important. The way I see it is that all it takes is for us to Desire, Ask, Believe and we will Receive. Mind over matter coupled with our positive action will guide the chosen lucky charm to do its work.

My personal favourite is the lucky rabbits foot. Drawing from the peaceful quiet rabbit, always alert, always swift of foot. This talisman will install in the wearer the feeling of peace of mind is thought to afford strong protection.
