Artist's Statement:

Creating art works in my own interpretation is a joy when others examine them and express their pleasure, and inquisitive "that's cool, how do you do that?".  I have always wanted to "do something different", and now have the opportunity to pursue that endeavor in full vigor and effort.  The images, and their encapsulating frames, are one of a kind.  Over time I have developed a multi-step process to to gain the beautiful copper color patina and lines that make these pictures pleasingly unique.  No picture, or frame is the same.  My studio is a combination of a drawing room, metal cutting/welding area, and a wood working area.  The frames are in themselves works of art.  I strive to collect only the most weathered, yet quality, wood that will compliment and add distinction to the picture.  The wood sculptures are carved to obtain the best grain and color match.  Often the wood contains original rusted nails, and nail holes.  If someone wants an original art piece, that no one else will have a copy of, my studio can create it!  All listed prices include personal delivery to your home within the Inland Empire. A significant discount is offered for pick up from my Redlands location.  All my works are guaranteed to please and leave you happy with your selection. If for ANY reason (size, color, frame or metal inconsistant with your decor) is not to your utmost liking, please let me know and I will give you a full refund, correct the questionable piece, or give you credit for another piece.  I will also pick up the work from your house, if local, at no charge. Your satisfaction is what I strive for.

Thanks!

Artist's Biography

Brad Willason has been a California resident all his life.  Raised and attending school in Riverside he went on to attain a Bachelors degree in biology and chemistry from the University of California San Diego, along the way studying art history, styles and techniques.  He has  always been a "creator" and even designed and personally built a custom triangular shaped home, complete with triangular front windows that resembled eyes looking out onto the valley below.  Art on a very large scale, so to speak.  After spending over 2 decades in medical sales,  he has retired from corporate life to persue unique metal and wood artistry.  Work to him in this field is an oxymoron statement since he now truly loves this style of doing what he personally feels will be something that others will enjoy now, and for many years in the future. The need to try something different has propelled Brad to break new grounds, and also the rules, which always results in unique, successful styles and accomplishmentsHis techniques in metal sculpting and tinting, married with his personally constructed, beautifully weathered wood sculptures and frames, are something he has perfected and he takes great pride in making sure each piece is a quality, "one of a kind" work of art.
