Work in stone sculpture is a fine form of meditation.  As such my work has had an inward focus. I attempt to incorporate the styles of past masters as a means to learn both technique and the aesthetics of sculptural art.  From there, the work dictates its own character.  I tend to work from nature finding inspiration in animal and human forms.  The work I do is a continuing apprenticeship to the long tradition of stone sculpture.
