I love the medium of stone. I have worked with it for more than thirty years, devoting my professional and artistic career to the creation of site-specific, sculptural responses to urban environments. Although a challenging material to carve, stone conveys every chisel stroke forward, speaking to future generations with the same vital energy as the day it was crafted.
My sculptural practices have always inhabited a grey area between sculpture and architecture. Virtually all my purely artistic sculptures have been privately and publicly commissioned, many developed in close collaboration with world-class professional design teams. With them, my role has been to translate architectural and design visions into stone expressions. Some inhabit public spaces, others remain in private settings.
My current style of work is abstract and figurative. Typically working larger than human scale, I have been exploring mass and compositional gesture. For the last five years, I have been developing a group of sculptures, the Sentinel Series, designed to stand witness in open landscapes. Several Sentinels are executed in granite and their maquettes cast in bronze. In both styles I strive for deeply expressive textural finishes, crafted by hand with hammer and chisel.
