I am a minimalistic steel sculptor using steel I-beams. I created the three sculptures presented here, which were made at my studio in Lake Worth, FL. They are displayed on the Florida Turnpike, south bond, near the Lake Worth exit. They range in size from 22 feet tall, 18 feet tall, and 9 feet tall. I developed what I believe to be a revolutionary technique of bending the I-beams into curved shapes without using heat, and only using hydraulics.
My goal with this project was to design and prototype a form of steel sculpting using I-beams bent into curved shapes using hydraulics. I will further develop this method of sculpting and expand it to use larger steel I-beams and more complex curved shapes in as many public and private sculpture venues as possible.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
