Your time on earth is precious; you can spend that time being as happy or as miserable as you want to be. I enjoy working with stone simply because it makes me happy to uncover the shape and beauty hiding inside.

Exploring stone and envisioning possibilities is a labor of love.   Time is suspended while I’m balancing shape and color and trying to discover shapes that have been hidden inside the stone for millennia waiting for me to unlock them.




Stone is a difficult and unforgiving media.   If I fight it and try to force it to my will, ultimately I end up frustrated.   Once I relax and work with the structure nature set in place, the work flows and the piece finally takes shape.
