I created this sculpture to be a peaceful and benevolent presence. It will be placed at the edge of the beautiful marsh that inspired it. I chose the great blue heron as my subject because I like the symbolism: skill and patience, going with the flow. I also like that the Iroquois people considered it an omen of good luck.
I would like to thank everyone involved in making the symposium possible. It is very exciting to be part of such a great project.

Addison Sculpture Story
Lise chose a boulder from an old quarry in the Addison area.
Working in her usual figurative style, Lise designed her sculpture with the marsh in mind.
The sculpture form took shape over six weeks. It was installed in Addison in September 2011.
