“I was born on January 6, 1962 in Dallas, Texas where I lived with my parents and two brothers until after graduating from high school in 1980. After moving around to different places for a few years, I made my home in Arizona where I live today with my wife and children. I truly believe I was meant to be an artist from a very early age – as early as five years old. I have delved into many different types of art, including murals, night club theming, theming of haunted houses, gates, doors, faux finish painting, furniture, photography, and fossil and dinosaur egg restoration. I have since settled into my passion – metal art – creating sculptures, wall hangings, chess sets, and steampunk critters and fish. I have public art located as far away as Taiwan, Tennessee, and right here in Arizona.” – John Benedict
