I have personally known Doc for 8 years. (about the time he went -off the radar- as far as Facebook goes.) – If you ever meet Doc in person, ask him the story about his laptop! 💻 Trust me, it’ll be worth it!😄
As you’ll read below, He is one of our ‘seasoned’ fellow artists. He has been in the game longer than some of y’all have been alive! (no offense anybody – just facts!)👈
Doc is one of the artists that I will personally be handling logistics for, Some of his works are crrently available on my website.
The following is an introduction directly from your artist – Doc Watson –
⭐ Swamp Dweller Art started as “Rocks by Doc” back in the 90s. Back then I was working with Pipestone carving, beadwork and leather goods. I was also teaching at the American Indian center at SCSU [St. Cloud State University]. That was until I met this feller one day, who told me about Rendezvous and about making black powder guns. So.. I thought I’d try my hand at that. I did, and went on to making small cannons and knives with carved antler handles. Then I heard about a place called The Hairy Mosquito Trading Company. That was about 15 years ago and I have become a part of the family there. In fact, I’ve had a working studio inside for the past 3 years. I’ve been creating for the better part of 30 years.
“I bring your ideas to life through unique, individual pieces of art, using natural elements, wood, antler, and leather.” – Robert ‘Doc’ Watson⭐ – Swamp Dweller Art- ⭐
Doc is one of my best friends and an artist that I work with on a regular basis. Weekly at minimun during our season here in MN. We have neigboring studios; I smell the sage when he burns it! (“…and some of my incense are a little strong.”) 🤣
🎂 IN FACT – DOC and I share a birthday too! (how could I almost foget that?!) We seldom have an August event and it has become tradition that our August event is Our Leo birthdays! ♌ 🦁
🔜We are in the process of getting Doc back on-line so you will actively be able to communicate with your artist and discuss custom requests/orders directly.
📣I will be sharing some of Docs available works just as soon as the weather lets us keep our plans to meet up!
Stay tuned – Doc says “It’s the year of the Gnome!” and I think that’s the first thing we’re gonna post. They are the BEST spring gift – especially for your garden Gnome loving friends and family! 🍄
