Andy de la Maza
Nature is the best artist one could possibly know, and will most likely be the inspiration for anything I create as an artist.
I have no formal training as an artist and would fear that formal training might somehow interrupt my creative process.
A few years back a friend of mine found me drilling quarts points and garnets in my living room. He said “I have got a job for you”. The job he spoke of was tooling bronzes. I was astounded and amazed as I learned I could immortalize almost anything with this process. The artist inside me was reborn!
My desire as an artist is to bring beauty, joy, and intrigue to the deeper nuances found in nature. I feel like I have only scratched the surface. As my insight and techniques broaden I aspire to larger and more complex pieces derived from Mother Earth Herself.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what I have contributed to the world of art.
Sincerely Andy de la Maza
