....The sculpture pictured was created for the Atlantic City NJ Boardwalk as a part of a fun tourism project. Mark Twain didn't last very long on the Atlantic City Boardwalk..... I have always been a Mark Twain fan because of his honesty and his integrity. I read all his books when I was growing up and got to know him even more as I researched for this project. He was a true humanitarian and in his day that took a lot of guts. I was truly mystified when he was called a racist by some people in Atlantic City. It stirred up so much controversy that he had to be removed after just a few weeks.... The local story grew into a national and international story. One of the things that I am very pleased about is that because of the controversy a lot more people got to know him better and in so doing their quality of thinking was effected in a positive way. Good for you Mark!

George Washington

.....another fun sculpture for the Atlantic City BoardwalkThe sculpture pictured was created for the Atlantic City NJ Boardwalk as a part of a fun tourism project. one of the difficulties in doing a piece like this was deciding which of the depictions of George Washington to use..All of the paintings of him during his lifetime presented different images. In the end I went with my own interpretation! The sculpture is carved out of a block of polystyrene.

The Sculptures on the right were created for
a Verizon corporate party in Orlando, Florida
in 2009. The sculptures are carved out of polystyrene with a wooden skeleton. The entrance piece is over 20ft tall. The bars have
complete function within the sculpture. In addition to the 3 bars and entrance piece I also created 36 surf boards many of which served as set-up tables for food.
