John has enjoyed a life-long fascination with the ocean. He splits his time between his studios in the New Hampshire seacoast and Boothbay, Maine. He is on, near, or in the ocean year-round witnessing all of the water’s moods while boating, fishing, and surfing.
As an accomplished mechanical engineer, John is able to intuitively adapt his three-dimensional sensibilities and professional design processes to the inherent qualities of a stone. This enables him to create sculptures that truly reflect the ocean’s allure.
John spends hours studying an individual stone’s unique qualities before deciding what will emerge from it. His hope is that people can sense movement while viewing his sinuous sculptures.
