Jose’s passion for sculpting started as a young boy when he would use the extra dough from his mother’s cooking to sculpt. He also loved to run outside when it was raining to make the mud, his “clay,” into animal figures and play with them until they became dry and crumbled.
Without formal training, he has been drawn to sculpting because of his inner need to create. He pursued this passion for art while working at a Fine Art Foundry where he continued to hone his artistic skills. He was inspired while working with many talented artists. “I love the feelings of freedom and joy that I get during the process and completion of a Hummingbird sculpture.”
