Please take a few minutes to look at these missing children.....
maybe you can help bring one of these Angels home.
...a little about me
...as early as grade school, I wanted to be an artist. I drew stick figure drawings on all available paper and even in the margins of my books.
...after High School and the Army I went to New York City were I worked as a shoe salesman and attended drawing classes at the "Art Students League" for a short time.
...I saved up and later attended "The New School" in Greenwich Village NY. What I experienced there about creating has followed me to today. It was not just the classes or the instructors. It was a place and a time of freedom of expression. Creativity was everywhere. The art, the music, the poetry, the people.....it was awesome!
After leaving New York I spent several years traveling and living a hippy lifestyle with some artist and musician friends. I created and sold paintings along the way. We set-up in mall parking lots, fields, flea markets, concerts and even on the beach. We put what we made together and made enough to support ourselves and our life-style.
I later visited some friends who were attending college in Florida and it has been my home ever since.
I continued to paint while studying and experimenting with sculpting materials. My sculptures and wall sculptures become popular at Fine Art Shows and gallery exhibitions. I was later represented by the very prestigious Foster Harmon Gallery of American Art in Sarasota. I won 53 awards in gallery and art show competitions..
I am currently working on new paintings and sculptures at my Zephyrhills, FL studio.
I am committed to promoting a vegan lifestyle, and being an advocate for animals.
Thanx for the visit.......Robert (backstreetpoet) Stagemyer
