“When the Rock Whispers, if you listen closely, it will tell you what it wants to be!"
Sculpture is my passion. Through it I am artfully expressing beauty, honoring balance and cultivating love. Sharing what I see, feel and imagine, I am inspired to create art that captures a mood, an emotion or speak to the imagination.
Stone is my preferred medium of choice because it is a composite of all the elements: fire, water, earth and air - a totality of all matter. It is a complex and challenging material because of its frail nature under the chisel; yet stone possesses such permanency, strength and raw beauty. It speaks to me in its rough form --of a person, animal, or object, calling to be released. When the rock whispers it tells me what it wants to be!
