"My sculptures have a softness, a warmth, an invitation. They are a representation of my natural curiosity and my personality, which is warm, welcoming, and inclusive. I naturally see all sides of situations, something that I present in my sculptures. Like me, my sculptures don’t have many sharp edges, they have curves positive and negative space, and lots of conversation between the different sides of the stone."
"I believe there is a sculpture in every piece of stone, even when it’s difficult to find. Natural features give me a starting point for how to approach the stone to transform it into the sculpture it is supposed to be."
"In my own work, an important measure is whether I would buy it."
"As always, I listened to the stone, working with it, encouraging the stone to reveal itself to me."
"I'm massively honoured to be an elected member of the Sculptors Society of Canada."
"Metal and assemblage are additive art forms – you keep adding material until the sculpture is finished.
Stone sculpting is a reductive art form – where you slowly remove pieces of stone until the sculpture is finished.
With assemblage sculpture you’re creating something from what you have. It comes from your imagination and the materials you have on hand."
