About the Artist

Many people know Talbot’s public art—his award-winning art house/studio Casa Neverlandia, his mosaic sculpture on South Congress, his magical Fairy Pavilion in Walnut Creek Park—but fewer folks have had the opportunity to experience his mixed-media studio art.Inventively sculpting with unexpected combinations of beads, forged steel, stained glass, sequins, ceramics, fiber, colored mirror, Plexiglas, polystyrene, ferrocement, and LEDs, he’s mastered the art of surface treatment and has successfully bridged that gap between craft and fine art.With a BA in Architecture (’71) from Rice, he worked for years as a designer/builder of children’s environments–many of his works exhibit a childlike playfulness and evoke a deep sense of wonder and delight. Raised in the military, Talbot has traveled the world, and the influences of the cultures in which he‘s lived permeate his art.Talbot’s sense of magic and the sacred is evident in everything he creates, winning him awards in numerous art shows around the country. His work has been featured in Beadwork Magazine, Texas Monthly, HGTV, TLC, and books on contemporary bead art, fiber arts, and alternative architecture (that’s Casa Neverlandia on the cover of the Weird Homes book).

Artist Statement

My work is the change I want to see. Practicing my art is my ongoing vote for a better world. It is how I show my love and gratitude for this miraculous garden that we live in and all we’ve been given. I have succeeded as an artist to the extent that I’ve reminded you of your own essential magnificence and of the magic that surrounds us all.
