The Endless Journey

Chris Williams

 

My creative side has always been influencing my life. I always had a project going. Whether it be sand castles as a kid or models as a young man. Loving the process drove meWhen it was time to take my place in the world as an adult, the distractions of earning a living and paying for my life, shifted my focus away from my passion. It wasn’t until my early twenties over a late night dinner that a friend said to me, “You must always make time for your art”.  “It doesn’t matter what you do, just do it”. Those words really changed me. I could not ignore my passion any longer without knowing I was missing out on something important.  I woke up the next day and went to work. I’m the third generation metal worker continuing in my family’s foot steps in a machine shop in Rockport, Massachusetts.  But at the end of the day, I stayed a little later and began to weld things together.  It was just art time, just because.  My life today as I approach twenty years of creating my art, sparked from that late night conversation with friends.  Many people ask me how all this started and for me the answer is simple.
