Tolley Marney's Artist Statement:
Creation is the place where hope begins. Through art I find my humanity; a place of worship and reflection.
As windy days weather my life, I meet the world with apprehension. I embrace the outcome, knowing there will be another day to create my visions that lie within me. My journey is to embrace the outcome of my life.
