My experience in carving stone began 23 years ago with learning from master stonecarver Vincent Palumbo when I was 11 years old. We collaborated during the next 20 years on numerous stonecarving projects, including great work at the National Cathedral and the White House in our nation’s capital.

My academic training culminated in a diploma in sculpture from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara Stone, Carrara, Italy. Many, many thanks to Master Stone Carver Vincent Palumbo.


  • Marble, limestone, sandstone, granite.
  • Primarily figurative, ornate, representational carving.
  • Lettering, architectural carving.
  • Portraits, statuary, artistic carving, sculpture.

“The best statement about stonecarving is the carving itself.”
