Artist Statement

The basis for my creativity in stone can be summarized as FEEL, FLOW, FORM. Focusing on the abstract allows my creativity to find its own end. When working with stone, I am constantly feeling the curves and lines I am creating. Since I use hand tools almost exclusively, I develop my sculptures slowly and allow the direction to reveal itself. The continuous flow of the work is critical. In the end, the form is pleasing to the eye and flows as a whole.

I sculpt mainly in soapstone, alabaster and limestone. My style is to create sculptures that are simple. Due to the simplicity, diversity and the organic nature of my work, people use their own imagination when looking at my sculptures.
