Serefina is a large seahorse composed of a blended modeling compound of cement, concrete, kaolin, recycled materials, fortified sealant stains and acrylics.This work is an effort on my part as an artist to create more with recycled materials and make a statement about the waste that winds up in our waters and impacts our sea life.


Serefina was created for an outdoor sculpture competition.


City of Lakeland as the Sculpture competition organizer and my Michael Bowler for transport and installation.

Additional Information

Serefina is on display until Feb 2019 in downtown Lakeland, Florida on loan to the city for an annual competition. She is included here as an example of my work. Serefina is no longer available.
