SCULPTURE

Although I have sculpted with other materials, my favorite medium is stone, especially granite, which is a local stone in the Ardeche region of France. The subjects I like are either the human figure or images of animals, usually those that live around me. I rarely make models of the pieces before I begin as the spirit of the stone carries within it the image I am searching for. Architectural settings are important to me. Therefore most of the sculptures are destined to become part of a building.
