I have been carving stone and making sculptures for forty years. During the 1990s I created a large body of stone, wood, and metal sculptures at the old Vermont Marble Company site in West Rutland, Vermont. Carving daily at my studio on the quarry enabled me to experience a vivid connection with the men who had cut and shaped the stone. I learned to appreciate its elemental magnetism for our ancestors and for us. My work is an ongoing effort to fashion physical metaphors from the stone that connect our ancestors to us and our progeny. My art is organic, abstract, and elemental.
