Abstract Stone Sculpture

         My abstract stone sculptures depict the waves of thoughts moving through my mind at various moments. Sometimes, I sit in front of the stone, shut my eyes and meditate before starting the art process.  I think of the form I need to create to transfer feelings of tranquility onto these works. When I feel angry, I attack the stone with the same mass array of sharp and powerful tools such as 7-inch diamond blades and high-powered air hammers, to chisel away and eliminate my stress, anxiety, and frustration.  These emotions vanish as they are infused into the rock.

Its true beauty of these sculpture lays not merely in its physical presence, but in its soul.  My point is to bring a dead rock to life. What better way than to give it a physical shape and breathe my emotions into its grooves?
