Work should equal happiness...
My name is Steve Gomez and I’m a Sculptor and Digital Artist. Since I was in 1st grade, I have always had a talent for drawing and sculpting clay. My Grandfather was an Artist and often encouraged my creativity and to keep up with my work. All the way through high School, I completed every shop class the school offered. Wood Shop and Metal Shop is where I continued my creative talents. Building things is what I loved to do. I then started to prepare myself to be an Architect. It’s a long story, but that didn’t work out and I ended up going to school to become a Machinist and Toolmaker. That led to me into getting a Degree in Computer Aided Drafting and Computer Aided Manufacturing. I’ve worked in the Aerospace industry grind for over 24 years, but my true passion still lies with Art and Architecture.
I later discovered software in that I could create sculpture with the use of a computer. I could digitally create Art with a variety of sculpting tools. I then incorporate the same type of machine I use in the aerospace industry to speed up the process of carving my favorite medium, wood. It was a huge investment in equipment and software, but I believe the creative possibilities are endless, and will one day pay for itself.
With these techniques, I utilize my aerospace skills, along with all my artistic and woodworking skills. In 2005 I took the plunge and purchased all the software and equipment to get started. My original business concept was to create carved entrance doors and moldings. This started out well, until the economy collapsed and home building and remodels came to a halt. I then started to think of new, creative ways to utilize my skills, and this awesome technology. I started creating Carved Portraits, Art Wall Hangings, and one of my best ideas, “Branded Coasters.”
My Carved Wood Portraits are created from digitals pictures. My computer program creates a relief using the grayscale of the picture. I then stain the wood and sand the high spots by hand working, directly off a print of the picture. People tell me it’s the coolest and most original thing they’ve ever seen. I like to say it immortalizes the subject. On top of it all, I do all this for a reasonable price.
My wall hangings are mostly deep relief’s made out of oak, mahogany, maple and cherry woods. The art can range from originals of carved tropical fish to Picasso paintings turned 3D. If someone likes a particular piece of art., I can scale it to fit an entrance door or cabinet doors. At Art shows, I present small to medium pieces of these carved wood creations for sale. I also work on commissioned projects.
The Branded Coasters of iconic figures was one of my best ideas. I carve iconic musicians and scenes into metal and burn the images into wood to make drink coasters. The Beatles, Bob Marley, Johnny Cash to name just a few. They also come with a stand to display on a table or any flat surface. The coasters are a lot of fun for only $20.
If you are interested in seeing wood sculptures with amazing detail and some really cool coasters, please check out my website or see me at a show.
