Tom Sheerin

Lansing, MI, United States

I am a recycling artist.I began my art career in Lansing, Mi where I was born and raised. I am 47 years old with no more than a high school education. I was involved in the arts throughout my school years. I excelled in art, wood shop and drafting classes. I developed a love for lettering, fascinated by the many faces of the letter form. Shortly after graduating, I started a sign business in my mother’s basement. I worked in the commercial arts for many years always telling myself someday I’ll be a “real” artist and in 1998 began working as a fine artist. Thinking I would be a 2D artist, I began painting but quickly became bored with only two dimensions. So I gravitated toward 3D art and started sculpting using found objects. Since then my art has evolved from simply putting objects together to a more complex process of altering and assembling objects. This process allows me to create more intricate and detailed representational pieces. I Am committed to being a recycling artist.
