I have been a professional stone sculptor since 1985. I have gained a reputation as a multi-talented stone
sculptor, noted for my ability to transform a wide variety of stone into original sculptures of unique grace
and spirit. My sculptural interests have progressed from small tabletop creations of beauty to powerful
creations of monumental public sculpture. In 1999, I was commissioned to create my first public stone
sculpture. Recent commissions have explored images of spirituality, mythology, abstract, figurative and
wildlife forms and a variety of stones from local marbles and sandstone to alabaster and granite.
My sculptures are widely collected and eagerly sought by patrons who appreciate the quality, originality
and diversity of my work. The majority of my work is found in private homes, offices, gardens and
corporate collections and public spaces worldwide.
I work in stone because I feel a deep affinity to the material and its connection to the earth and time.
I respect its enduring qualities, textures and strengths while exploring its ability to be transformed and
shaped into endless forms.
My work is based on discovering that which is unknown or unseen in the stone and bringing it into the
world of the visible. My latest work reflects the nature of reality through metaphor and symbol. Exploring
that which is universal, mysterious and challenging and sharing the discovery.
The main focus of my current work is to create powerful thought provoking stone sculptures for the
private and public sphere.
