Artist Spotlight: Wayne Vaughn

Nature and industry inspire my work. I strive to bring animation, balance, and intrigue to my work, playing with gravity, but keeping trust between the piece and its landscape. My hope is that my work invites the viewer to play, question, and respond. It is a great honor to have my work recognized, but my greatest reward is the delight on the face of a child.
— Wayne Vaughn

Builder. Musician. Sculptor.

As an apprentice to a master carpenter, Wayne Vaughn enjoyed a successful building career that spanned four decades.  Music plays an important part in his life as founding member of a 28 year old brass band. Rooted in this combination of physical skill and know-how, dedication, and creative pursuit,  in 2004 his career as sculptor was fostered.  Very quickly his bold, geometric, large-scale works began winning awards and the attention of regional and national shows.
