"My Inspiration for my sculptures comes from my fascination with 'forms.' For me there is a special feeling that I sense in carving the stone. A personal response I feel to the intriguing and inspirational challenge of the aged old stone with its grain, density and color, which reveals to me a surprising hidden beauty. I sculpt for myself and I find there is nothing more satisfying than to express myself in stone."
