“I love the limitless avenues of possibility in metal, the three-dimensionality of the steel and
simply the fun of creating art in this rigid yet flowing medium.”
Skidd received his BA in Philosophy from the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in New Hampshire and a MFA in Painting in 2002
from the New York Academy of Art in Manhattan. He also studied privately in Rome and Oxford and now lives in Scottsdale with his
wife and three children.

Specializing in original paintings on steel, Skidd transforms raw sheets of steel into what he calls “Contemporary Dimensional
Metal Wall Art”. He uses a simple sheet of steel to begin the artistic process which includes bending, welding, grinding, painting
and finally clear coating the final piece with a UV stabilized exterior polyurethane gloss. All of the work is done by the artist. “Its half
painting, half sculpture” he says. Skidd’s artwork is an exploration into new techniques while still drawing upon a formal education
and wealth of experience. He is constantly searching for simple expressions of aesthetics.  “During my youth, the constant
presence of my great-grandfather’s art hanging above me and throughout my home inspired me to love beauty and pursue that
beauty through my own painting.”

In April 2007 Skidd showed a sample of his popular work to the designers of ABC’s Sunday night show “Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition”. ABC decided to showcase his work in an episode that profiled the Yazzie family and their “green” home on the Navajo
Nation in Pinon, Arizona. Skidd donated 9 pieces of artwork to the Yazzie family.
