About the Instructor

troy

Troy Hawkins is a self-taught artist working in jewelry, silk and found objects assemblage and collage.

“I really enjoy the fluidity and motion of silk. As a medium, it fascinates me because the colors, shapes and forms are somewhat out of the artist’s control. Creating wearable silk art and jewelry are natural partners. I have always been interested in the history of adornment, but it is a great high to see someone wearing one of my creations. My collage and assemblage pieces are an extension of my love of storytelling. Each object is a piece of a puzzle. All three art forms are an expression of my experiences and of my love of the natural and the organic. Each image on silk, each bead in my jewelry and each object in my collage and assemblage has its own story.”

Troy has exhibited his work at the Foundry, Brickhouse Gallery, Barton Gallery and 20th Street Art in Sacramento and in galleries in Redding. He has done public projects for the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission-Art in Public Places, El Dorado Arts Council and the City of Placerville and was a featured Demonstration Studio Artist at the 2006 California State Fair.

Troy has owned his own Gallery and teaches classes based on each medium he works in. He is the owner of HawkMan Studios and co-founder of Redding’s 2nd Saturday ArtHop.
