Artist Statement

"Creating "Housculptures" helps me connect with different structures and their surroundings and to show their importance and simplicity. An old barn, once vital but perhaps forgotten, is resurrected. I am able to combine the use of a variety of materials that I like to work with mainly: wood, colored pencil, paper, markers and paint.

My choice of subject, which has evolved from single buildings to scenes, is usually connected to an important memory a Brooklyn landmark, an Italian festival that I piece together to recapture the feeling of a certain place and time. I select my materials as close as possible to the original structure and landscape.

My current work brings together my past and present: my past love of certain places and my exploration of new places and buildings along with my love for detail.

The piece is complete after I add minor, but important individual nuances that help make the "Housculpture" come alive."
