A short artist statement:


Finding that one thing which addresses a ravenous spiritual need that results in unshakeable contentment is not unlike being grafted into a tree…to be part of the life that flows from its deep root system. “Abiding” originated from a terrible sense of loss and the need to find peace out of a hopeless situation. “To be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water that yields fruit in its season” is a verse that illustrates this overwhelming desire for stability in an increasingly perilous and chaotic life. It is a call to abide in The Tree – to draw upon its strength and experience the life that will result.

Irene Deely is a prominent sculptor of bronze and steel. She is the artist/founder of the Liberty Let’s Roll Tour inspired by her large scale Liberty sculpture. For more information and Irene’s full portfolio, please visit her webpage
