Most of my work is derived originally from the figure; sometimes a mass, sometimes a gesture line or actual contour. From this starting point I develop a form, carving the stone in an almost intuitive process to connect the planes and lines that make up the piece. I aim to end up with a piece that draws me in and makes me want to trace the shapes with my fingers, to see where they go, where they start and finish.
