Where Can I See Your Art?
Besides my studio, my pieces can be found in galleries and private homes around the world. You can also find me at art fairs and festivals throughout the mid-west much of the year. I post about these events as well as solo exhibitions on my facebook page at www.facebook.com/jamielockeart.
How Long Does It Take You To Make A Piece?
I work freehand and in the round 4-6 hours at a time. My pieces can take anywhere from 4 – 72 hours to create depending on the size and the complexity of the piece.
For custom pieces, I am currently scheduled out 4-5 weeks.
What Materials Do You Use?
I primarily carve on birch and maple wood and use acrylic paint or stain for color. However, I have been known to carve on just about anything I can get my hands on! 🙂
What Tools Do You Use?
This is the #1 question I am asked and while some of my tools are discovered by trial and error, you will predominantly find me using a Dremel Rotary Tool with a variety of different sized bits, depending on the project.
If you’re looking to purchase a Dremel, I highly recommend the Dremel 4300 for it’s great multi-use capability and portability: Dremel 4300-5/40 High Performance Rotary Tool Kit with Universal 3-Jaw Chuck, 5 Attachments and 40 Accessories . Be sure to pair it with the Dremel 225-01 Flex Shaft Attachment for more precision and detail!
The primary tool I use is the Dremel 9100-21 Forti-Flex 2.5-Amp Stationary Flex Shaft Precision Rotary Tool. I love it for it’s power and the fact that it’s powered by a foot pedal which allows for hands free powering on and off.
