My sculpture and painting have an abstract constructive approach. It is also intended that the works have highly textured and colored surfaces. The recent work of the last two years is centered around the stacking of blocks sometimes figure based and sometimes architecture based. The sculptures are stacked often quite formally and other times with a more casual haphazard appearance.Materials most often used are wood found on beaches or in lumber yards, sea grape limbs, dowels, glue, and generous amounts of paint.
