Artist Statement

Sculpting is a journey – the recording of a story. The stone sculptures seem to have a life of their own and know exactly what they want to be.

I just have to carve, listen to what they have to say and try not to take too much off. In return they show me what I need to see, tell me what I need to hear.

Relationships and connections are important to me. I love to bring dissimilar materials together to create thought-provoking and intriguing mixed media sculptures.

They celebrate their differences while encouraging us to do the same.

With the figurative wall sculptures, I like to see something as extraordinary as the human body transformed into a hand carved sculpture that tells its own, unique tale.

Art is my teacher, healer and friend.
