Artist Statement:

"I see my function as similar to a hiker on a remote trail who piles stones along the way to
help others remain on the path. As such, when I encounter dazzling works by other artists
I feel a connectedness to the experience. A feeling of affirmation that others have taken
this path and that it is a worth-while endeavor. When the rocks are piled so carefully and
so skillfully that they seem to defy gravity, it is a reminder to let go of the need to reach
the destination and recognize that what is most sacred are the examples we leave for
others along the journey.
My work is a continual practice of arranging the stones so surprisingly that they become
arresting beacons of assurance that we are not lost, we are not alone. We are."
