Personal Musings on Art and Life

I am always amazed at the inherent beauty of the different rocks in their natural state even before I begin the task of carving and altering their original shape. They are truly gifts from Mother Earth. It seems that since man appeared on this sacred planet, he has beheld these gifts from Mother Earth and has attempted to create some tribute to life and nature by using them to celebrate various values; religion, culture, self-fulfillment. And still today we continue to chip away at these unique rocks in the hope of creating something that will communicate our inner visions to share with the rest of our fellow man.
