Maybe the arrowheads my father found in Alabama as a child and later gave to me were my first inkling that stone could be shaped to suit our needs. But it wasn't until I took a studio art class at UCSC that I realized how much my hands wanted to shape clay, wood and wax. Bronze sculptor Doyle Foreman was an early mentor at UCSC and I eventually majored in art. Henry Moore, Brancusi and Barbara Hepworth inspired me from afar. Stone would come later though a UCSC Extension class. Power tools, marble and Open Studios followed. Still working in bronze and wood as well as stone, I treasure the time, the stillness and the discoveries I find in the studio. And I still have the arrowheads.
