Internationally recognized sculptor Dawn Johnson introduces, through Fine Art America, an ever changing collection of unique modern metal sculptures. All of my pieces are hand cut and brushed using many different grinding and sanding techniques. Each one is unique and original. I create these sculptures in a small studio located in Mentor, Ohio and spend anywhere from 20 to 100 hours per week creating these sculptures.
I have always been an artist at heart but it wasnt until 3 years ago that I had found the medium that most inspired me, I love the brilliance found in the metal, I enjoy hand grinding and sanding until I can bring out the hidden beauty in the metal. I find inspiration all around me, through shapes and color, nature and trash, I love modern contemporary decor and enjoy the challenge of creating the perfect piece to compliment a room. The possibilities are endless when you are working with metal.
I am a self taught sculptor who after envisioning what a few scrap pieces of metal could look like, went out and got some tools and started learning. Since I had never used a power tool in my life it was a challenge to get started but once I figured it out and felt comfortable with the tools I was able to master many different techniques to get the desired effect. I know I have a lot to learn but I have been told that my na´vetÚ allows me to see things with truly fresh eyes.
