My early works were figurative sculptures in bronze, using the lost wax method. These works were influenced by my life in West Texas in a ranching territory and in New Mexico among the Indian history. As my art grew, I stretched and started working with aluminum, steel and rock. My works became minimal and representational, introducing me to the world of abstract art. Art grows as the artist becomes acuteley aware of his surroundings and is challenged to record what he feels and sees. My work stretched from figurative to conceptual abstract.
