Robert T Davis, “Bob”, is an all-around artist and polymath. After completing a degree in Fine Art at University of New Mexico, he worked as a theater technician. Now he builds large kinetic metal sculptures, often incorporating into them old classic trucks that he rescues from car gardens and junkyards. Bob is an innovator, welder, sculptor, print maker, painter, tin worker, and cabinet grade carpenter. He is a long-term breeder of Navajo-Churro sheep, shears the wool from his flock, spins it into yarn, and hand weaves it into Rio Grande blankets. He invented a felting machine known as “Thumper” for the Espanola Valley Fiber Arts Center. Bob is also, but not limited to, a Burro-packing wilderness aficionado, fisherman, lifelong skier, volunteer firefighter, and father. He repairs and drives old 4×4 vehicles and tractors, bakes bread, makes flan, tortillas, and green and red chile enchiladas from scratch, and dances the Taos 2-step. He has a perfect sense of direction (up AND down). Check out his YouTube Channel.  And you can message him at via Facebook Messenger, or email rtdavisartist@gmail.com
