How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I work in indigenous stone from mostly local quarries to carve standing stones, birdbaths and benches with snippets of poetry

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Carving in stone means that I can work with my hands to combine my love of words with my love of letterforms. It means that I can visit small quarries in remote and beautiful landscapes to source the stone and let my imagination roam free.
