For the past 28 years, I have designed, sculpted and installed custom projects in stone throughout the Puget Sound region. My work ranges from large-scale commercial and civic installations to sculptures set in private estates, gardens and collections to small personal sculptures. My preferred choices of materials are the natural ones: stone and other earth products. I am particularly interested in stones’ naturally-occurring characteristics, formations and textures.

Much of the work that I do strives to retain, enhance and abstract naturally-occurring shapes and lines through direct carving techniques. I then use textural gradations and stone polishes to create transitions between natural surfaces and worked surfaces.

I participate on teams as an artist, where a multi-disciplinary group composed of architects, landscape architects, writers, historians and visual artists is assembled to collaborate on a project. In addition, I frequently work with contractors and engineers where my art is an integral part of a large and complex project.
