More about the artist:
I am a second-generation sculptor, studying under my father, Frank J. Niemi (an ornamental iron artist and self-taught sculptor). I learned how to weld at my father’s studio in 1968, from the age of 12 until I was 18; my father was a major influence on my style and the craftsmanship that goes into a Niemi sculpture, as well as being taught to look at the world differently than most.
I entered Northern Illinois University in 1974 and graduated in 1981 with a BFA in Sculpture.
I have been welding and creating sculptures for 41 years, full-time for 24 years.
