“My wife Sharyn inspired our Buddha Collection. Upon moving into our majestic 1923 Tudor Gold Coast home that needed a lot of love and care, Sharyn asked me to surprise her with Buddhas to calm and center her through the renovation process. This began our love affair of collecting Buddhas, which Sharyn began to paint. They serve as daily peaceful reminders. Living with so many Buddhas inspired me to carve my Buddha designs, two of which were selected as Winners of World Gold Council Design Competitions.”
