Main sculpture at Vista Grande Community Center, Sandia Park, NM.
I have been fortunate to create over 50 large-scale public sculptures to date. My efforts on these projects won these awards for Aesthetics and Public Involvement; the PRIDE Award from the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, the Golden Cumbre Award from the New Mexico Public Relations Society of America, and the Americans for the Arts Kris Art of Giving Award.
I primarily choose to fabricated my sculpture with Cor-ten, steel, Stainless steel and custom galvanized steel because of their strength and durability, while providing a beautiful and varied tactile presence through the surfaces’ beautiful textures and colors. My sculpture will look virtually the same in twenty years, while requiring little to no maintenance. Graffiti is easily removed. My sculptures are designed and engineered with the strength and durability required for works in the public realm, while all my projects are ADA compliant. Additionally, when selected to create a project for a college or university, I am always interested in proving an educational component allowing for a variety of interaction with students from many different areas of study.
