“I have always been an Artist. I remember making sculptures for my History and English projects as far back as lower school. I was “king” of the shoebox dioramas. I like to think my path was already laid out for me, I just had to follow the breadcrumbs. My medium of choice has always been metal. About 9 years ago I switched over to Wood. However, I try to put some type of metal component into all of my Artwork. I think subconsciously I identify with both of these materials because of their unique characteristics and unforgiving demeanor.” – Philip A. Robinson Jr.
