I have been using iMovie and Garage band on my Mac to compose short narratives for selected works. In the first YouTube video, “Path of the Cherimoya” I talk about my path to becoming a wood sculptor and introduce a pivotal piece that influenced my subsequent work in terms of integrating carving with turning and using transparent color. The second YouTube video, “Emptiness and Weightlessness” focuses again on a single piece of work. I talk about integrating a variety of turning strategies including inside/outside carving and thin-walled hollow turning, to visualize a story. The third video “Water Trilogy” showcases the techniques, challenges and motivation for creating three water themed sculptures.
My goal has been to keep these movies short. I have used my existing photo records for these retrospectives. I would be very interested in your comments and feedback. And if you are inclined, please don’t forget to “like” and subscribe.

Very nice, Marilyn. Both videos helped me understand and appreciate the pieces even more. Your narration is both touching and enlightening.
Thanks Jeanette, making these is keeping me off the streets!
