Miles Chapin
Miles Chapin grew up in Maine and was exposed to sculpture at an early age. His passion for stone sculpture developed in high school where he first began to work as a sculptor. He continued to cultivate his skills while getting his B.A. in Human Ecology at College of the Atlantic. He currently lives in Westminster West, Vermont.

"In my sculpture, I use curves and texture to mimic motion and emotion. I carve directly, developing a relationship with the stone instead of precisely copying a maquette. I embrace imperfection, and try to avoid perfect symmetry. I am constantly playing with the inter- relationship form has with itself. I strive for my artistic voice to come through my work, to touch, and connect with the viewer and pull them in."
