I am a full-time sculptor for over two decades, I am primarily known for my unique and dynamic approach to shapes of objects, people or animals. I strive to have my own minimalist style that is elegant with a deep significance. I have permanent sculptures in several states in The United States and I participate with the Sculpture Walk in South Dakota, Georgia, Eau Claire, WI, CO. and Castlegar, Canada. I have won dozens of awards and People’s Choice award, scholarships and artist in residence programs. I am a native of Brazil and I immigrated to the United States in 1968. I have become an American citizen in 1981. I studied art at the Art Student League of NY where I received a five year certificate in fine arts and sculpture. I have also received a four year artist in residency program from the Hastings Academy of Art.
