“I believe that when we open ourselves to art and it touches us, we get a spark, something indefinable, from the experience.  This connection that happens is the reason I keep creating sculpture. 
I started sculpting in stone 20 years ago. I love the resistivity material because it’s perfect for creating long graceful sharp lines and full volumes. The subtraction process drives decision-making forward not allowing one to second guess and go backward. A good metaphor for life and not just stone carving.
When carving, I try to capture the natural essence of the stone in the choice of my design and to discover cohesive forms that use shape and texture to translate feelings, create moods and invite people to be drawn in.  Each piece gradually takes on a life of it’s own through the stone-carving process, sometimes revealing itself early, and other times not until the final polish.  Each work develops it’s own personality and helps create it’s own story.” S.
