I'm currently trying to explore the intermixing of technical complexity with simple repeating patterns. For this sculpture I started with attempting carving 2 interlocking mobius triangles but was unable to fit it in the stone. I then took a belt of mine and tied it in a 5 way knot. It was complex, but had an attractive visual appeal. I successfully carved that shape in this alabaster but during sanding accidentally broke the sculpture and due to internal stress it simultaneously broke into 5 separate pieces. In order to glue it back together, between each crack I epoxied flexible brass sheets. At that point I decided this piece should celebrate it's story and not try to hide the repair so I carved it out deeper and filled with a contrasting brown epoxy to highlight the "flaws" instead.

I got my first exposure to handmade art by experimenting with a variety of hardwoods on my father’s lathe when I was young. In college, I sold my wooden creations in several independent boutiques. Years later, in 2009, I discovered my true artistic passion during a week-long stone carving course with the Marble Institute of Colorado. The journey that began in the pristine mountains set on the Crystal River just outside Marble, Colorado, continues today under the trees in my North Texas backyard. Using a variety of marble, alabaster, and onyx in a range of colors and patterns, I personally design and carve each piece. I am constantly experimenting with new concepts to further expand my technique while at the same time insisting on only the highest standards of craftsmanship. As a result, I produce only three to six sculptures each year. While my focus so far has been in using simple contemporary forms to let the natural beauty of the stone be the hero, my current obsession is exploring the boundaries of myself and the stone through complex interwoven designs.
