Lew follows two distinct styles in his sculpting: he creates busts and reliefs of Indigenous people, and he creates portrait sculptures for historically-based exhibits.
Lew accepts commissions for sculptures and offers for sale his limited inventory.
Lew has been a professional artist for over 30 years. He holds a B.A. in Music, an M.B.A. and completed a Post-baccalaureate Sculpture Track at California State University, Monterey Bay. He often combines his talents with artists in other genres in creating exhibits and has exhibited in the National Steinbeck Center, Salinas, CA, Irish Cultural Museum in New Orleans, LA, Ataloa Museum at Bacone College, Muskogee, OK and La Loggia Gallery, Assissi, Italy, among others.
Lew has joined with two other artists and a writer to create the exhibit, “Woody is just Woody” ~ Steinbeck. The exhibit opens in the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, OK from April-July 2022. It will then be featured at Woodyfest in Okemah, OK as part of its 25th Anniversary celebration in July. The exhibit then travels to Salinas, CA where it will be featured in the National Steinbeck Center from September through December.
Lew leads sculpting workshops for beginners to advanced artists.
His next workshop, Sculpting the Face, is March 17-20, 2022, at Eureka Springs School of the Arts, Arkansas.
Lew and his wife, Kathryn, are the hosts of Ozark Artist Retreat and Studio, offering artists a tranquil place to work and reflect.
