I cut stone mostly by hand with hammers, chisels, rasps and abrasives, exploring ways to honour its innate sense of gravity and stillness while still expressing energy and movement within the carved form. It is often only when a piece is nearly finished that its sensuality is revealed: the stone unveils its secrets with shell forms, veins of colour fossilised within the substance of time.

I carve stone as an invitation to touch. I believe that the relevance of touch-stones is increasingly important in this visual age. Exploring their changing temperatures, textures, forms and spaces not only offers new landscapes of discovery but also a sense of being an infinitesimally small part of a much greater whole.
