Artist Ryan McCue, a lifelong resident of South Carolina, has had a passion for art his entire life. He grew up in the woodshop with his father and grandfather, and in high school when he was presented the opportunity to take a welding course, he saw it as an opening to further expand his work medium. Only recently has he incorporated glass into his pieces, pulling from his mother’s work with stained glass. Ryan is a graduate of Clemson University. After graduation he spent three months backpacking in Europe, during which time he visited as many art galleries as he could, exploring the classics and delving into modern art. He feels closeness to nature and believes that it is a driving force behind his work. Grizzly Creations is a new, but long anticipated endeavor for the artist.
