I am a Baltimore-based artist. Using classic materials, time-honored carving techniques, and simple tools, I handcraft contemporary stone sculptures.
I enjoy challenging the notion that stone carving belongs solely to past eras. For instance, many people only associate marble sculpture with the untouchable artifacts, saintly statues, and somber monuments found in history museums, old churches, and ancient cemeteries.
I enjoy creating marble artworks that reflect more modern times, are a bit more whimsical, and can be enjoyed in the home, garden or gallery. (And where the sculptures can be closely admired, since I believe that stone art provides a unique tactile experience.) I also work with alabaster, limestone and soapstone.
In addition to carving the most primitive material -- rock, I also create 3D imagery (holograms) using highly advanced photo-optical technologies in the laser laboratory. Holography can be considered "sculpting with light."
A recent exhibition included a sculpture and a holographic image of that sculpture, side-by-side. The hologram was produced as a result of a Artist-in-Residence award from HoloCenter( NYC).
My professional portfolio also includes fused glass artworks, large-scale image projections (lightshows), and digital graphics.
