Paul Nixon, master craftsman and artist.

This month we have received some incredible pieces of art created by Paul Nixon. I'll let him speak for himself:
I am an artist/sculptor that works in various mediums in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Originally from Clondalkin, County Dublin I was inspired by my grandmother as a young child by her belief in the fairy world in the mountains of County Sligo.
Three of the four images I am submitting are cement sculptures that I created and then incorporated them into digitally created settings.
My third image the FAIRY QUEEN, I created and then cast in resin.
To see more of my work, my website Celtic Twilight Photography will direct you to my body of work. Click "More" top right of screen to access drop box images.
Many years before, like so many Irish leaving those shores, I pursued a dream in foreign parts, never realizing that one day my dream would reconnect me with home in such a way.
(All we can say is _Thank you very much!!)
