When a sculptor looks for a model, it can be a long and tiring process. But on occasion good luck intervenes, Elena is one of those occasions. With artistic talent in her own right, she chose to answer an ad that I had run. It was obvious that she had the ability to embrace the idea and enfuse it with energy. Our first piece was Quando Me'n Vo' followed with "Nymph Dreaming". Elena has accepted an offer from myself to be the model in residence for Raw Tierra. I look forward to having her as the subject of several more pieces.
