Tom Torrey's Profile
I grew up on the south shore of Massachusetts and after attending Bridgewater State College for sculpture and graphic design. I moved to the North Shore.
I then attended Mass College of Art, for illustration. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and started to look for illustration work just at the time stock illustration cds were becoming the rage.
With the freelance illustration dwindling and my portfolio gathering dust I decided to go back to my first love, sculpture.
My main goal for my sculptures is to make people smile. A box of yard sale candy tins and my love of science fiction were the perfect combination to obtain that goal.
I love the feeling of holding my art after it is done. I derive satisfaction from creating
something beautiful out of plain ugly objects.
i started to create robot sculptures a few years ago. and i havent stopped yet.
