Project: The Healing Touch

The Healing Touch” sculpture, created this year, to celebrate the compassionate touch that resonates within us. It is appropriate today as we come together to heal a wounded world moving away from selfishness. With the hope and compassion of a new millennium she reaches out to remind us that when we are called to love unconditionally we heal each other and recognize our more angelic side.” From “Art of Healing” article in the Grand Rapids Press during ArtPrize 2009.


The more traditional sculpture, Mercy was originally designed to recognize those who work in the medical profession. The Artist’s sister was a Nurse Practitioner and he created this larger, second sculpture in her honor with the idea of sharing that moment when one touches the heart of another and embraces our more divine nature. Her left arm is gently touching the patient and her right arm is becoming a wing.

We are offering the Healing Touch, an inspiring limited edition bronze, which can help lead others onto a pathway of wholeness and inspire those who visit your healing center. A smaller companion sculpture on a marble base, “Mercy” standing just 21″ tall, is available as a gift to your benefactors, donors and supporters at a very reasonable price.

Please contact us to arrange for placement of The Healing Touch at your location. An appointment can be made for you to speak directly with the artist to work out the final details including inscriptions for the base and the type of base that would work best for you.
