Jim Toia is Director of Community Based Teaching at Lafayette College.
"I've been a sculptor since I was about sixteen years old."
"What inflamed your passion?"
"I would say the love of making art and certainly coming from my mom. She was a painter, and that was an easy thing to tap into and take off on."
"So why sculpting?"
"When I tell people I'm a painter, they ask me to paint their house. When I tell them I'm a sculptor, they don't ask me to sculpt their house. (Laughs) So it's easier to say I'm a sculptor. And I'm driven by material, and I work with nature, primarily. So, walking around the woods and gathering different pieces of natural materials is what I love to respond to most."
