About | Description:
I am a self-taught sculptor who began in 2002. I learned the traditional craft of stone carving by working among the artigiani in Pietrasanta, Italy. Some of the oldest known works of representational art are carved out of stone. Stone sculpture was perfected through the ages by the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, and the famed sculptors of the Italian Renaissance. How to work with this most ancient matter, and while honoring its noble tradition also express something powerful in a completely new and authentic way? This challenge is what pushes me. I am driven to give life to stone, an impossibly static material, and to portray the eternal and ephemeral emotions that both bind us together and drive us apart. Using this timeless substance I strive to tell the enduring stories of human interaction and feelings: of conflict and anger, of desire and fear.
