Hi… I would like to introduce myself... I am a passionate Artist, Designer and Craftsperson. I have a Studio where I dream my dreams, hoard my tools, and make an abominable mess from which erupt amazing, imaginings and creations… My first love is drawing, but I am primarily a sculptor and designer-maker. I have an enormous passion for anything and everything that is creative. I have mastered a wide range of skills and don’t ascribe myself to any single discipline. I call myself an ideas artist.. a maker.. a creator.. My work evolves from an idea, which, in itself demands it’s own essential skills, materials and processes to bring it to fruition. I colour. I draw. I design. I create delightful events and functions. I design and style wonderful weddings. I paint. I scribble. I dabble and doodle. I work with metal. I work with clay. I am deadly with a sewing machine, and a needle and thread. I work with wood. I carve in timber and in stone. I scavenge bountiful supplies from wonderful piles on the side of the road. I make furniture. I weld. I bend wire. I collect rusty bits and pieces and squirrel them away for later. I am not any one thing, as determined by my practiced hand-skills. I am, however, all of the above and more… I am always eager to learn and to explore new ideas. I work to exceptionally high standards, with the ability to manage and develop projects from the first wobbly scribbles on scrappy bits of paper, through to presenting to clients and final production. I love to hide away and nut something out; and I have the very special ability of being so focused on a project that the real world can completely vanish from existence… My work is original, unique, quirky, and often whimsical. I am influenced greatly by childhood fancies and imaginings… and also by my experiences and passion for the Australian way of life. I can find beauty where others cannot see it. I make magic with things that are useless and discarded. I show people a world lost and forgotten. I am a Creator and my desire is to create something breathtaking in the world, to make people stop… and wonder in delight.

Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I live in the small town of Armada, Michigan. I have been an artist for as long as I could pick up a pencil. Becoming a known artist and working professionally in the field has been a life long dream of mine as well as my family's. Art started off as a hobby, but as I grew so did my abilities. I am currently a Media Arts and Animation student at Macomb Community college, where I transferred from the Art Institute. My abilities include, but are not limited to, graphite, charcoal, airbrushed acrylic, colored pencil, ink, marker, and acrylic washes. Most of my work is done on gessoed illustration board in acrylics and colored pencil. There are no limits to my imagination and you will find me very clever and creative. Once I get going on a project, the only thing that's stopping me is running out of paint.

Hello, My name is Paul. I have over 12 years of experience editing photographs and images and making them print ready for professional photographers and graphic designers. I have recently closed down my canvas printing business to take on full-time freelancing. Over the last 12 years, I have developed several unique techniques to get the most vibrant colors and sharpest images possible. I have also mastered image enlargement. I can make images very large without losing quality, I believe that there very few other people that truly understand the file to print process as I do. I am also very good at photo restoration, I have restored at least 500 old torn, scratched and faded photographs over the years. My interests are music and art. I am very passionate about music and music production, I have over 20 years of music experience and have become quite proficient in the field of audio production, I specialize in removing noise and mixing down tracks. Creativity is the key to my success?.
