The process of carving stone has many similarities to that of drawing, in that it is a relatively simple process requiring few tools and is, by and large, a solitary process. The correlation between the two processes cannot be overstated and in many ways I see no distinction between the two, the one supporting the other. My research is evident in my output, my studio offers me the ideal environment to develop and progress my practice.
