The vocabulary of my sculptures is based on the architectural and the surreal. The forms are predominantly totems, shadowbox constructions, small houses, and building facades. The architectural references are drawn from traveling fairgrounds, circuses, amusement parks, and especially Coney Island. Other elements include many decorative building facades, shrines, and temples. My sculptures include the use of elements such as doorways, hallways, stairways, gargoyles, masks, columns, and collages. It integrates many architectural styles.

Drawing on the real and imagined, especially the world of the amusement park, which as a metaphor reflects the world of fun and danger, good and evil, moral and immoral, innocence and its many opposites and paradoxes.
