“Stone forms the bones of this earth, and is proof of its origin.” – world-renown Japanese-American sculptor, Isamu Noguchi.
I believe within its silence, stone contains the story of our existence. My sculptures are my reflection upon this world and this life in transit.
My stone figures began to take on abstract form from the beginning. This led to total abstraction–alluding to, but not directly translating to the figure. My sculptures are both contemplative and meditative and are born from observation of nature’s essential forms.
In 1983 I began sculpting with Vince Ricci Studio and at the SMFA in Boston and in 1986 was accepted as a full time student at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts where I continued my studies of the figure and stone sculpture. During the Summers I attended The Carving Studio in Vermont perfecting my skills. I later attended a workshop in Carrara, Italy and in 1997 returned to continue stone carving.
In 1992 I moved to Northern Arizona where I exhibit my stone and bronze sculptures. I’ve been represented by numerous art galleries throughout the United States.
Along with sculpting, I have created numerous special effects (SFX) concept character designs and have worked as a SFX film production makeup artist.
