“A lifetime of making something from nothing.”
To me, making art is a continual search of self and, consequently, a work in progress. I am inspired by so many things: nature, art, music, the musings of writers and thinkers.
As a young boy growing up in Puerto Rico, I made my own toys out of twigs, cigar boxes and metal coils from sardine cans - anything I could find. In college, I started to do charcoal drawings, and graduating from that, marble sculpture. That led me to experimenting with wire sculptures, starting with small trees that morphed into larger pieces. I am particularly proud of my 12 ft. giraffe wire construction, which was the third-place winner at the Westhampton Art Show. My latest work is a wire sculpture of a life size horse.
“I enjoy coiling wire and love stone and glass. In opposition to my larger sculptures, jewelry made with imagination and skill is also art – in miniature.”
