Artist Steve Thimmig was born and raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He Graduated From Sheboygan North High School in 1975 and except for one year at UW/Sheboygan he considers himself a self taught artist.
“I consider myself a visual musician because music is and always has been a huge influential factor in my art. A fascination and love for album cover art fuels that influence as well. I credit Storm Thorgerson, Roger Dean and Hugh Syme as some of my favorite artists and influences. My creative process is similar to that of a songwriter in that I take pieces of ideas (cords) and images (riffs) and piece them together to create a complete work.”
“My paintings are my songs.”
Artist Peg Haubert recently shared her encaustic art talents with 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Peg did a 45 minute workshop with each class and discussed processes of encaustic, historical facts and information about herself. After the artist talk, students were able to make a small pendant using melted wax and burnishing techniques.
