Adam has been working in steel for over 25 years and it has been his blessing to create beautiful works of art for clients all over the world. Steel is his medium of choice due to its forgiving nature and strength. Adam uses various tools including MIG welders, grinders, plasma cutters, chop saws and dozens of others. He incorporates many recycled and repurposed items into each piece which adds to the history and story of each sculpture. His style is a mix of fantasy, animation, steampunk, and science fiction, which have all been a huge influence in his life.
Adam’s passion, excitement, and respect for the medium has allowed him to produce over 7000 one-of-a-kind sculptures in his life and he’s still going strong. He has been featured in various magazines, news shows, art shows, and has won numerous best of show awards in juried shows all over the country. Adam’s clients include private collectors, corporations, celebrities, athletes and and a menagerie of characters. Adam says it’s an honor and a privilege to be an artist and he hopes you enjoy his work as much as he does creating it.
Judith’s art interest started as soon as she realized she could create with her hands! She went from crafting to fine arts as she started visiting museums to see artwork by her second cousin, Robert Raushenberg. Seeing his and other’s fascinating works drove her to learn more by attending college to get her art degrees, MA and Masters. Judith’s work has been mostly representational until recently when it became more non-objective containing shapes and patterns. Using acrylics, mixed media and oil paint, she will often create house-like shapes showing the warmth and security of home and family.
Sandy moved to Prescott, Arizona in June, 2019, having lived in Pagosa Springs, Colorado since 1995. She was born in Wisconsin, raised in Illinois, and attended art school in Chicago. She is currently devoting her time to creating and marketing her artwork. Sandy studied art in college, spent many years in a variety of careers and past-times, but always created and experimented with art media. With the addition of several workshops with notables such as Pierre Mion, Gary Greene, Vera Curnow, Stephen Quiller, and Sandra Duran Wilson, she is free to use her “Artistic License” to create whatever reality she dreams of. She describes her artwork as “Reality With a Twist”. Sandy’s artwork deals with shape, color and ideas, definitely with her own version of reality. She works primarily in acrylic, watercolor, and pen with ink. Her newest medium is oil-based ink in which she creates Monoprints on paper or canvas, a method learned from Shy Rabbit’s Michael Coffee – his reductive-ink process. She often incorporates mixed media to create unusual effects. She likes to have several series of different subject matter in the works at one time. This helps to keep her images and ideas fresh and lively. Her colors are bold, exciting and vibrant. Her images are partly literal, but she incorporates “other-worldly” or abstract elements also. Many pieces contain suggestions of the macrocosmic or microcosmic in them, often using circles or line repetition to indicate the on-going cyclic and repetitive nature of life. She keeps a sense of humor about her, and loves to leave room in her work for the mysterious, the personal interpretation.
