have been involved in art in one form or another as long as I can remember.
Every thing I do is self taught, I think that's what makes art fun and
creative for me. Trying to figure out how to dabble in deferent mediums, genres and
techniques. Now, I'm not one to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to, each new endeavor is
researched and carefully planed and hopefully executed successfully! If not,
OH WELL! I'm just trying to enjoy the ride and experience what life has in store for
me! I'm not going to go quietly to the grave! I'm the one
who will be sliding in head first in a cloud of dust! WAHOO!! That was a hell of a ride!
Can we do it again?!!
am completely ambidextrous. Writing, drawing, sculpting and even the chop
sticks, which is probably why my right and left brain play tug of war so often! A
favorite party trick of mine is to grab two pencils and start writing
sentences with both hands simultaneously, or to start drawing a picture using
both right and left hands together. Try it...
A couple of years ago I was in a local
clay shop getting some terracotta clay for another project that
I was starting. I noticed some Cernit clay all dusty
high up on a back
shelf while I was poking around, taking in the positive vibes of the earthy
surroundings. I picked up a package and later that year made an
elf for Christmas.
was searching the web for epoxy for another project and I found a product
Magic sculpt. While searching
their site I found a link to
Coughlan, she use's magic sculpt to make ears and repaints Barbie's.
Also during the search, I found a link to
Willich. Once that you have seen her work you are truly inspired...
bet you can see where this is going! That
was the start, I found a link to Prosculpt and ordered a block.
couple of year back a golfing buddy and I put together a book about the
of golf. We've been hockin' it ever since. I used my previous years as a entrepreneurial
illustrate the book.
try and fit in 30 hours of stuff in a 24 hour day is a little difficult at
times. I try to squeeze everything that I can into those short little passing
hours. We all have 24 hours in our wallet to spend everyday, and I spend mine on
some of my passions; golf, working out, trying to spend enough time sculpting
as well as my other artistic pursuits. Thus far my goal has been to try
and sculpt at least one piece per month.
took around 40 or 50 sculptures for me to really develop a
style to call my own, as you look through the photo's in my
gallery you will notice that no 2 sculptures really look alike. Right now I'm stretching,
trying to see where the far reaches of my imagination take me.
it in a nut shell, the .25 cent tour, so to speak. I hope you enjoy your look
drop me a quick note and let me know what's on your mind.
