Lucas Vines, Avon, IN Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I am an artist in every aspect that my life encompasses, whether painting on canvas or organizing objects on a shelf. Line and balance have became habits. For me art isn't a hobby it is a lifestyle and it is a lifestyle that I am extremely lucky to be able to live. I paint, draw, sculpt, build furniture, design interiors, cook fancy dinners (you know, the ones that look amazing but don't always taste as good as they look). I deal in creation just as much as art, as long as it is hands on and hand made and a completely original idea. I also have what I call a digital side. I graduated from the Art Institute of Indianapolis in 2008 with a degree in desktop publishing and advertising. So I also spend quit a bit of time designing commercially for a sign company located here in Avon Indiana. I stay busy and love every second of it.
