Carving out time, space, and place. Carving in stone, metal, wood and clay. I find transcendence through carving; find purpose and meaning through tool strokes and shining finishes.
The creative process is as spiritual as it is physical. I believe that it is part of the artists’ craft to act as a medium for this process and to liberate artwork rather than dictate it.
This body of work is narrative, it has spoken through many mediums, and its stories change in each reading.
