Luther Brigman (Towinockdesigns) Profile
About / Bio
My name is Luther Brigman, I am from the Statimc nation, . My family originates from a area known as towinock IR,(cat cr.),(Txwinek) near Lillooet B.C., along the fraser river.
I am a Statimc artist. I have been drawing most of my life. My artworks are mostly wildlife, native art. I also do portraits, carving, painting, etc. I am self taught, have been influenced by observing others, and learning things from different people in my life. I prefer to use photographs as a reference for my pieces, for the reason that, light and color change every second, and a photo is the only way to capture all the true colors and lighting of an image. most all of my works stem from photos. I owe the greatest appreciation to photographers.
I use pencil, prismacolor color pencil, and pen, on white, and black acid free, recycled papers. The inspiration that gave me the push to where I’m at now, came from my parents, family and friends. My mother was always there being supportive, It was her that gave me the push I needed to continue on with my art. My dad was the one that helped me advance my detail, and dimentions, through out my life. He always challenged me with new ideas, and suggested new techniques. My inspiration for wildlife, and nature came from all the traveling I have done in the past. The spirit of nature and wildlife have always been with me, and in my art, I imagine from my father teaching me stuff in the woods, going on hikes, camping, rock hounding, hunting, fishing, and traveling around to different places, keeping me in touch with nature, and wildlife through out my life.
