After early work in clay and plaster, I have focused mostly on stone. Once I improved my subtractive technique in stone, I found it much easier to manipulate the additive processes of clay and plaster. My work is both figural and abstract, often whimsical, with some imagery derived from my background in biology. While the shape of the original stone will often dictate possibilities, the end product will always be modified during the process. With clay and plaster, one typically has more control over the end product. I’ve enjoyed both immensely. I have exhibited work at the Fuller Craft Museum, the Augustus Saint Gaudens National Park, the Boston Design Center, and the Gardens at Elm Bank, among other sites.
