Featured Artist – Rob Satterwhite
Q & A
Q: Tell us a little about your art.
Q: Why did you start doing what you do?
I’ve been in the high tech industry too long. I have inspiration from my wife who is a great artist and a marketing guru. And I’ve always liked working with my hands, using tools, doing things other people wouldn’t think possible.
Q: What makes you different from others in your field?
Q: What are your biggest influences?
A: The beauty of our natural surroundings – birds, trees, butterflies, nature – designs that would enhance peoples gardens and patios. I want something simple and elegant that can be enjoyed for many years, but also an eye-catching design, and sometimes a sense of whimsy!
Q: Tell us something most people don’t know about your process.
A: I’m still creating things by hand, in a very organic way. There are a lot more steps than people might imagine, and it’s a very physical process. I sure get my daily exercise in!
Q: Where would you like to go next?
A: I’m looking to try and create 3-D layered effects as a whole new style. And perhaps something with movement – like several interactive metal parts that move with the wind.
