My passion is sculpting with hardstone - exploring and enhancing the natural qualities of stone in form, polish, texture, light and shadow. My works are an expression of optimism for change in society and are influenced by my surrounding environment. Recent works are an expression of appreciating the beauty and form of everyday objects.
