The idea of the stone landscape as a context for creating relationships between the different elements developed as I was searching for a relatively immediate means to create sculpture in the rather slow medium of traditionally carved stone.
The first few landscapes were made throughout with different types of stone, but before long I began introducing other materials as needed.
I found I could loosely assemble and arrange the different elements in much the same way one would design a collage, before the actual carving and assembly of the parts takes place.

The metaphor of the landscape has allowed me to interpret and express complex relationships I observe in the lives of those around me and in my own life.
Those relationships might be the overall work of an author I enjoy, or the sound of a particular piece of music, or perhaps just an exploration of the personality of people that I have met.
