Randy’s high-relief wood sculptures are a fantasy lover’s dream come true. Take a trip into a weird world of dragons, elves, and goblins.
My work is very consistent, which allows me to choose from a variety of subject matter. The subjects that I am most often drawn to are in the fantasy realm. However, occasionally I feel a need to create based on other fascinating topics.
Wood. Specifically, my go-to species are Basswood, Birch, and Butternut.
Evolution for my work has been achieved through depth, detail, and color. Over the past 20 plus years, I found that getting more depth provided me with greater realism, detail with more believability, and color with vivid emotion.
Boy Scouts, as a child. Further, I think the creative spirit was always there and unconsciously “looking” for a way to be expressed. The thought of these two factors, when they collided, was like nothing I ever felt before.
Though my own work is done mainly in high relief, I am influenced by sculpture artists that create 360 degree works of art, such as the ancient Greeks, among more modern artists.
