" Watching my dad draw and make beautiful things, gave me a greater appreciation for work ethic and commitment to the art. The inherited art is part in the constant exposure to the process as an everyday routine, and part an instinctual propensity to execute the skill well. The hammer and chissel are a defining rhythm on the soundtrack of my childhood. " – J. Emily DeLorge Gilfour
