For a particular show, I felt it needed sculpture; so six years ago, I began to weld and never stopped. This led to a number of awards and public displays. Most recently, two sculptures “Avis Gloriae et Lavdis” and “Nature Eternal,” were displayed on Riverside Park South in Manhattan.
Discovering that thoughtful art can reach viewers of all races, gender, ages and socio-economic backgrounds became a driving force behind my desire to produce for the public. Drawing from the unlimited wells of the invisible world--those who are left behind and nature unnoticed--are the source. Building works outside has also made me acutely aware of my responsibility towards the planet. Digging into the ground, introducing concrete and steel, I am very sensitive to the impact of sculpture on nature. To bring awareness and enhance my surroundings rather than jar and disrupt the world are my intentions.
