Robert Nelson began serious art studies in an after-school invitational program in the 5th grade. Art courses continued in college at UC Berkeley where he majored in Architecture. He sold his first sculpture in this period in 1966. After a decade of ceramic art and then painting, he has returned primarily to three dimensional work, using recycled/repurposed materials – much of it “straight from the Strait.” His works are both artistic and whimsical. He enjoys transforming everyday ‘litter’ into aesthetically pleasing pieces that people enjoy – while at the same time cleaning up the environment.
