Gavin Worth was born in Zimbabwe, Africa but grew up in Cruces, New Mexico. He is a self-taught artist who discovered his lifelong passion when he saw Michelangelo’s “Head of Leda” in a library book. His sculptures, made of metal wires, look like line paintings. Gavin worked as a musician and actor for various theaters in California. To date, he has built a life-sized skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex for the American Southwest Theater Company, worked as a set designer and painter for the Santa Fe Opera. He was also an illustrator for George Ronald Publishing. Gavin currently lives and works in Cairo, Egypt, where he teaches at the American International School.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
