Missouri artist Ralph Wayne Freer's captivating works of art can be found in the century old farmhouse which he has converted into the Flying "F" Gallery. Both his gallery and studio are located on Highway "W" near Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
Although Ralph's Ozark roots include being born in a Civil War era log house he has had the good fortune to travel and live in Europe, Central America, and throughout the United States. He believes these experiences have shaped and influenced his approach to life and art.
Ralph is primarily a sculptor working in wood. His artistic style is a continually evolving three-dimensional impressionism. He focuses on the exploration of shapes, forms, and color. As with most artists Ralph is intense about his art. His formal training includes life drawings with Malcolm Ross and portrait sculpture with Jane Doxey, both in Key West, Florida.
