Last and most important can you tell us all about you? Your family, your
training?Leave Your Interview!
I found this whole sculpting thing almost by accident. I
have always had an intrest in art in a 2 dimensional sense, but with the
exception of playing with teracotta clay in art class many years ago, had
never considered sculpting. I have since found that I feel more
comfortable working in 3 dimensions, and am more proud of my works in 3d. I
really havent had any training it sculpting and am trying to figure out how
it works on my own, I gleen any info I can from the internet, and from
feedback from friends.
