Artist Del Shearrow
To donate my art commissions to individuals in my own community who need financial help in overcoming an unexpected catastrophic health crisis.
“It’s rare that I ever use new, clean, perfect steel and materials. Almost 100% of the materials I use are recycled. Whether it’s the character of used, pitted, nicked, scratched, weathered, bent, worn and mangled steel, or, some old copper pipes, a copper roof shingle, or, an antique barn joist, post or any other old piece of wood … to be able to breathe both life and purpose back into these materials and give them some design and beauty … is very satisfying. By choosing to not sell my art in a traditional art gallery with a 50% commission I am in more control of my prices and more importantly it has given me another purpose beyond the art I create.
Every once in awhile I may use water jets or laser cutters or some other modern technology, but, I prefer handheld tools because they seem to give me a more intimate relationship with the materials I am working with. A literal ‘hands on’ approach leads to a more truly handmade one of kind finished look vs. an all to common nowadays technology based machined look.”

From June 23 thru September 23, 2020 – YOU can help me help Lisa too! Lisa Nelson my friend and professional colleague, is 44, lives in Madison, WI and is battling breast cancer. She has had a double mastectomy, lymph nodes removed, months of chemotherapy and will soon begin 6 weeks of radiation treatment (she also lives with epilepsy). Amid the Covid-19 pandemic no in-person fundraising events were allowed, so, maybe we can all pitch in and do something now.
SFAMadison.com recently donated a one of kind wall mirror to a fundraising auction held in Lisa’s honor of which all proceeds go to assist with all of the financial obligations associated with her illness. SFAMadison.com would like to further Lisa’s cause by providing a unique opportunity for you to help Lisa during these challenging times.
