Moved to the Las Vegas, Nevada valley in December of 2009. Member of the VEGAS ARTISTS GUILD since June of 2010. Member of the CONTEMPORARY ARTS CENTER, also since June 2010, which is located in the ALIOS at 1217 S. Main St. 89104 in the Art District of Las Vegas, NV. Licensed in the State of Nevada and the City of N Las Vegas to do business as ' Art and Stuff by Carl '.
Born and Raised in Louisiana. Spent most of my First 18 Years helping Dad with his Horse's and Cattle. Joined US Navy 1964 and Retired as a Navy Master Chief in 1989. While I did work at the Power Plant on the UC Berkeley Campus for almost 2 Years and worked at a couple of other Jobs, I spent the better part of about 18+ Years in the Automotive Industry Selling Cars and Trucks from a Wide Assortment of Makes.
My Three Favorite Sayings are ' Been There Done That ', ' It is what It is ' and ' It's All Good '. My Web Page is www.ArtandStuffbyCarl.com - I refer to myself as a self tought Artist who was established in 1947 and is still in training. My Methods of Expressing myself in Art have Almost always been in the Abstract.
The Mediums that I have used starting as far back as my Kindergarten Days are: Crayons; Crayons + Heat + Fabric; Pencil; Pen & Ink; Modeling Clays; Play Dough; Paper Mache; Plastic Models of various types; Building Skeletal Models of Animal remains;
Worked with Lincoln Logs and Legos; Sand Castles at the Beach; Basic Wood Carving; Once Dug a ~900 ' long Drainage Ditch Straight
as an Arrow and with Grade from ~2 in. to ~24 in. to drain a Back Pasture; Built a ~12 ft. X ~24 ft. Cattle shed with my brother Don.
Than in the Navy, I learned to Read and Draw Nuclear Propulsion Plant Systems and Components while training in the Nuclear Power Program. Finally found out that Drawing and Painting was a Huge Stress Release for me that was enjoyable and brought me the satisfaction of knowing other people liked my ' Art ' well enough to appreciate It as a Special Gift or to even perhaps Buy It.
