I think creativity in my line of work is finding something that no one else
has done so that you might be recognized by other
people for something new. Because people are always looking for something
new and to create that, you have to be thinking 24 hours a day The Sculptor Sometimes I wake up at 2:00 in the morning and come up with an idea and that’s creativity Or if you start a piece or a drawing or a painting
sometimes it doesn’t come out the way you want it to and that’s when your creative juices start to flow. You add to what your thoughts are I find my inspiration in the things that touch my heart. If I’m doing a smaller piece or even a large life size piece like I did for Spilsbury Mortuary,
that was a spiritual piece all the way. We prayed about that and the we didn’t react to the design for a long time because of the spirit that went into it. But that was inspirational all the way through and it’s called “Come Unto Me” It kind of makes people feel good about – not good- but I mean A little bit better about their loved ones that have died. An artist will create things that kind of look like him because that’s who you are you will create who you are. And sometimes I use a model or models for some of my pieces, but sometimes I see an ear that’s mine or a nose that’s mine, or an arm, a leg or a gesture. You try and make – in fact you are your own model. Because sometimes living out here in a ghost town you don’t have a lot of models running around so you have to do the study in the books or museums and things like that but you can still see who you are in your artwork. And that’s what sets you apart from other artists.
