Cartuna- Steve Wirtz- artist-sculptor
First off, I'm a sucker for anything sculpture, from mini-HUGE, up-cycled to shiny new, I heart it all (mostly).
I first came across Steve Wirtz's animated, playful, and beautiful, dog sculptures at Companion Art gallery. I happen to have my photography there as well. A great place for gifts for yourself or loved one(s).
It wasn't until I was at Discovery World, The Artisan Market, this past December, that I personally met him.
Steve has a funny & corny sense of humor which shows in his work. A super swell guy as well. We chatted about being a self- employed artists, and I asked a million questions about his craft. He is just as patient as he is swell!
I went to visit him in his studio last week to check out his art in progress. Check out more of his work around town and online!
