“I’ve grown into my art and found a home in metal sculpture. As a young boy I tinkered in my grandfather’s workshop. I feel that as children our imaginations are limitless. We seem to loose that freedom as we grow older. What I try to do when I create is to open my mind to that boy who imagined all of those years ago. I want to use my sculpture to share what I only dreamed I could create as a boy. I just let the metal lead me as I shape it and that’s when the true magic happens,” states McCullar.
