Gallery 'N' Gifts September guest artist, Matthew McTaggart

TVAA Gallery 'N' Gifts

"I was born in the U.S. and raised in the Cayman Islands. I've been sculpting since I was 4 years old. It has always been a passion of mine and a form of therapy for myself. I mainly use polymer clay for my finished pieces but also incorporate other types, as well as wire in my work. I enjoy boxing and acting in my free time. Most of my inspiration comes from nature especially exotic, endemic creatures, such as one of my favorites the blue iguana only to native to Grand Cayman," Matthew McTaggart said.
