Stours says: "I live by the adage that if you keep an open mind the solution will present itself.I draw inspiration from many sources--the history of art, art by my peers and my understanding of regional, national and world events."

Stours continues: "I use a lot of metaphor in my work so the creative thought process inspires me as does the making process. The images in my art come essentially from my imagination so in the end all these things combine to inspire me to create."

Stours says: I construct, carve and paint my pieces. With these linear sculptures I cut “staves” or sticks to shape and then fit them in place. After these are doweled and glued together I do detailed finishing work. Then I add up to 6 coats of gesso and paint the sculptures with several layers of transparent acrylics to achieve deep and rich surfaces.
