The child had a dream:
To dance with the trees
High in the clouds in their care-free world.
Born on the Caribbean Island of Haiti amid towering trees, exotic flowers and mountains, then educated in a boarding school in Quebec, Canada, Marika Bordes captured the best of two worlds.
In her middle years, she studied under the guidance of a master wood sculptor who at first glance told her, "Madam you can carve." Thus, a petite woman found herself working the complexity of wood with mallet and chisels.
Today, Marika's inspiring sculptures reside in many places as ambassadors witnessing the sacredness of life. They invite an inner sensation of joy and serenity.
