     I began my fine art education at Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine where students are taught contemporary concepts of art and design.  I then transferred to Lyme Academy of Fine Art in Old Lyme, Connecticut where I majored in Life Sculpture. Lyme Academy is a traditional school of fine art and it is there that I took courses in figurative sculpture and bas-relief sculpture.  Since completing my formal art education in 1998, I have created a body of work that includes in the round bronze figurative sculpture, bronze bas-relief and bronze sculpture based mainly on observation of the landscape and plants.  In my work I attempt to combine traditional sculptural techniques with contemporary ideas of two and three dimensional design.I began doing pastel drawings in February of 2011.  It had been a long dreary winter here in Michigan and I needed some color in my life.  My pastel drawing are based on photographs I take here in Michigan and while traveling.  They are fast and furious studies of color.  My love of art history is a great influence of my work.  Thanks for visiting my site.Gary Mulnix
