Hand Carved Stone Sculptures

Artists Statement:

I found my love of stone carving several years ago. This special medium is a hands only process from start to finish, firstly the making of the stone (a mix using marble or caen limestone) the carving ( done with a variety of hand tools) and to finish the sanding. I don't use any electric tools which makes it a very meditative experience. I love the roughness of the stone, I find it complements the 'mother earth' nature of my designs.

My Sculptures embody the feminine, her moods, sensuality, purity and charm. Elements of nature are apparent within the forms and limbs often become origins of a flowing line or swirl.
There have been no discernible influences on my style only my own growth and awareness. Because of this my designs are constantly changing and evolving. To capture the female and her 'inner being' in her many emotive states, along with her relationship with nature has always been my inspiration and motivation.
