Michael Broussard finds inspiration everywhere… in light shining through trees, the way hair moves when you run a comb through it, concrete sidewalks jutting out from brick walls. Then he manipulates metal to recreate the light and textures he sees and experiences as he observes the world. Since he was a child, Michael has been fascinated. He tinkers with things… tries to figure out how and why they work. And this lifelong fascination led him naturally to pursue careers involving creation. He’s worked in construction, in interior design and as a hair stylist for 15 years. Then three years ago, he decided to drop everything else and dedicate his life to fine art. Since that time, he has made metalworking his full-time profession and hobby with Atomic Twelve Designs.
