I finally have a picture of one of my favorite pieces. To me, Tim got this just right. I think that everyone else agreed as well. This piece got a merit award in the Springville Museum of Art's 86th Annual Spring Salon. The second year in a row he won an award. The piece is also on the first page of the annual book published of select pieces from the 86th Salon. The director of the Museum told Tim that this piece was one of the favorite pieces of the show.
As an artist I see beauty in everything from a car part to a unique piece of wood. My goal is to make art unique and fun, something with a WOW factor. Something you want to bring everybody to see and that you won't find any place else. my art also has a contemplative side, one that makes you think about here the materials came from and their history, or what made the uniqueness and beauty of the wood. Each sculpture has a story to tell.
The materials for my sculptures are found in old tools, car parts, motorcycles, farm equipment, wood, and whatever else inspires me. One of the things I enjoy is being able to take something that has been discarded or deemed useless and bring it back to life. I enjoy creating everything from human figures to animals, giant bugs to miniature dinosaurs, fairies to dragons, from realistic to abstract.
I have had classes in perspective, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics. I take from the world around me, libraries, museums, galleries, my mistakes, experiments, and other artist's experience.
I am a desert rat raised in Mesa, AZ and then living in Southern Nevada. i love the outdoors and the activities the outdoors provide. We moved to Utah 4 years ago and are enjoying the seasons and the colors that go with them.
Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy what you see. Come back often to see the works in progress, as well as new art. Feel free to email any questions to:
