Ken Newman

In the beginning, I had difficultly understanding why I was compeled to sculpt. I am self taught and love to experiement.  Sculpting is now an addiction and as I evolve as an artist, I find it more and more important to try to explain why I sculpt.  As each sculpture is completed, Debbie encourages me to write about the piece from my perpective as an artist.  On this portion of the website, I have posted a number of PDF files about many of my sculptures. Writing is not an easy process, it's quite messy, but Debbie insists and after a while I complete an initial draft.  I am inspired by the past as well as the present.  There is a reason why I sculpt each one, but I am typicaly unaware of it while sculpting ~ things evolve and are released ~ especially in wood.
