8. Michael Earney: The Utilitarian Artist

"Highly Recommended. Michael Earney could easily be called a Renaissance man, not only because he is an expert as an artist, sculptor and filmmaker, but also because he demands perfection on any project he works on. That said, he remains down to earth with no pretensions, appreciative that he can do what he loves and make a living. There's a great lesson in that for all aspiring artists." -National Media Review
Michael Earney, artist, sculptor, filmmaker, is a man of many, many talents. Originally from England, Michael has found a new home in America. In this insightful program he discusses his travels throughout the U.S. and his growth as an artist. Viewers will love to see the illusions he includes in his art and will admire his ability to capture the essence of Texas and the Southwest. Also beginning and experienced artists will appreciate his candor in discussing the utilitarian side of art - using one's artistic skills in a commercial sense is often necessary to make a living, but often can cause conflict with some artists.
