Meet "JAW" John Walton
No this is not JAW, but one of his pictures.
I have been doing art or involved with the arts all of my life. Throughout my school years doing murals, cartooning and creative arts, including wood and metal working, paper, sand, glues and a variety of building materials.
I started working in clay about that time and continued for about 25 years. Learning conventional pottery and clay sculpting. I will always have a strong love for the clay arts, but life led me to sculpting in lots of other clay like materials, and continues to this day. Without a doubt my character seems to be a builder -maker.
I started working in television, and got a degree in TV production, working from the bottom up doing documentaries for "Keep Florida Beautiful", "Florida State Parks", "Lake Apopka Restoration" and a variety of others and medical documentaries. These skills gave me a great perspective on media visuals, composition and light. I use these skills to this day and in the past as a studio and gallery manager, doing art installations and promotions.
During my early TV days I got involved with Digital Graphics and worked for the same TV Station, doing everything from part time to full time graphics. I fell in love with this media. I not only use it to help bring about other art pieces by fleshing out methods and details, but found creating digital art has the infinite ability to grow and create for me. As I move forward with many more ideas yet to come. I feel digital art will be with me from now on to bring about and push new creations’.
