Artist Statement

My sculptures exist as an extension of my artistic experience in an exploration of colours, shapes, and textures. For me – sculpture provides a unique challenge to create images and shapes from materials that initially convey no discernable image or form. Essentially a sculptor creates something from nothing. Unlike most media, stone sculptures are created by removing matter. My multi-dimensional stone offers the opportunity to convey sensuality, tension, beauty, and emotions. My pieces are contemporary and abstract. I prefer to reveal the stone’s essence and vision of its true self – inviting you to experience them within your own context, and personally interpret their meaning.
