I am self-taught in the art of carving and, while I have been carving stone for over 40 years, I am always open to learning more about it. I began as a woodcarver, but was drawn to soapstone, feeling that this material offered strength and a certain amount of permanence in a fast-changing world. I enjoy the challenge of producing a carving that will showcase the grain and unique qualities of each individual stone. Over the years I have experimented with a variety of different methods of combining soapstone with other materials, adding new dimensions to my carvings.
