About The Artist
As a sculptor, I can trace my interest in art back to the days when I would fetch wrenches for my dad, who was usually in some contorted position while fixing something or other-usually a car. That first appreciation for tools and how things worked was a kind of apprenticeship for wood and stone, and metal casting that was to come later in my study in Art. As a kid, the local wrecking yard owners all knew me and would turn a blind-eye towards my constant pilfering of old hood-ornaments and various other chrome objects. Now that I think of it, at current prices, that collection could probably serve as my retirement. It's no surprise that after a life-long study of Art, this early inspiration would resurface in some form or other, and apparently that is Moto-Arts.
My interest in Art started to peak in my teens and my focus was the female form-no surprise there, if you get my drift some of my early influences were unavoidable. Swirling around me were Bikes & Hot rods, Rock N' Roll, and all other cultural phenomena of my youth that are both surprising and yet totally predictable. I even taught myself to play guitar (to get the Girls), but no- I fell in Love with Guitar.
More recently, I could usually be depended upon for showing nudes in wood and stone. To shake things up a bit, I did a bronze nude sleeping on a Corvette side-pipe and called her "Exhausted". It's universal attraction led to the creation of Moto-Arts.
