Artist Statement

Colin C Boyd

Thunderbird’s Mid-West Dream

This series of illustrations are an exploration of the muse and phenomena that inform my work as a sculptor.  A narrative loosely weaves characters and objects, the subjects of work past and future.

The holiday season was great, I have got to meet so many wonderful people and the vibe here on River Street and in Troy as a whole is great. You really need to come check out all the wonderful shops around me. 

Here is a picture of my store sign and some of my soap shelves. I will take some better pictures as soon as some new fixtures I ordered get here. These were taken with my cell phone so don't mind the quality!
