Artist’s Bio
Stone carving is the culmination of the passions of a lifetime. As a youth I always collected rocks.  In fact, to me, all rocks were beautiful; the brown ones the shiny ones the rough ones…I collected many boxes of them.  To this day I still have the rock specimens and books given to me by a fellow rock hound friend of my parents.  Through my life everything I have gravitated to has been related to form in three dimensions; dancing, costume design, product development and design, art classes, masks, and now sculpture. The distillation of these elements came surprisingly through a class offering.  I thought it would be fun as well as great therapy (hitting a rock with a hammer!).  Once I started I never stopped.
