 Woodcarvings by Maura


This is dedicated to all those who have felt true passion and have had the courage to pursue their own dreams, whatever they may be.

My thanks and love to Mary, without who's support, this project never would have gotten off the ground; to Kevin who's very presence pushed me to find meaning in my own life: and to my mom who's early passing made me appreciate the life I have.
