Mixed Media / Baton Rouge, LA
My jewelry and gift pieces are an extension of my moods when designing and creating: happy, sad, loving, rebellious, pious, grateful, loyal, spirited and a bevy of other feelings. I mainly work as a mixed media jewelry artist using dichroic fused glass, wire wrapping, woven glass seed beads, sculptured polymer clay, copper etching and anything else that I can visualize adorning a beautiful piece of jewelry.
I am Carl Kennedy, Certified Public Accountant and Curator of the Baton Rouge Arts & Crafts Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My entire life I have been attracted to the arts, but spent most of my time practicing as a high level financial executive. I have sang in choirs, played the piano, guitar, trumpet and appeared in stage plays all before attempting my hand at the visual arts. In 2004, I decided to expand my artistic endeavors and the rest is history. I adore art of all kinds and appreciate the time, creativity and efforts that go into expressing yourself artistically. My work is sold under the name 'Carl Kennedy Designs' and can be found at www.carlkennedydesigns.com.
