Curator, Framer, Painter, Multi-Media Artist, Specializing in Recoverable Wood joins us for the 4th part of the Creativity Series. Hank Herring was born in Rose Hill, North Carolina in 1956. He learned about art at an early age from watching and being instructed by artistic family members.  His grandfathers, one a carpenter by trade, made walking canes.  The other a farmer, whittled.  Hank learned about colors and patterns watching his grandmothers and mother sew quilts.  He taught himself to draw and paint after receiving a gift of art supplies from his uncle, who inspired Hank to pursue his artistic development. Upon graduation from High School, Hank enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where he served twenty years.  With his specialty as a machinist he worked in many mediums: metals, plastics, glass and composite materials.  During this time, Hank continued to draw, paint and make crafted boxes and small furniture. Working with driftwood or found wood, Hank illustrates the natural patterns (eyes, faces, animals) that can be seen without the manipulation of tools or paint.  His construction and assemblages are made with objects trouves,  “found objects” or “rescued materials” as he calls them. Working with “rescued materials Hank illustrates that beauty can be found in anything.  “It requires the right attitude, the desire and a healthy imagination. “Art should stir your soul and ignite your imagination.”
