My work has a distinctive style in which carefully selected stones, usually of more than one kind, are fit tightly along clean lines with graceful curves. Careful attention is given to the balance and proportion of shapes and colors in the choice and placement of individual stones.
I usually work with mica schist from Goshen, Cummington, and Ashfield, MA, accented with cobble stones from Sunderland, MA, and built on a base of crushed basalt from Amherst, MA. Some of my work has incorporated boulders, granite, blue stone, field stone, river stone, marble, beach pebbles, or other hardscaping materials selected by my clients.
I am always open to working with new materials and trying new kinds of stone construction.
