Born in Galveston Texas in 1979, Radd traveled all over the United States before making his home on Maui in 2002. He started working with wood at the age of 15 when he apprenticed under his father who was a carpenter and woodworker. Many of Radd’s works adorn unique homes on Maui. He is well known for the architectural elements he introduces in entry ways and kitchen’s.
Radd has been producing fine wood pieces since 2004 and is perfecting his “shock” art for the past few years. Shock art is Radd’s interpretation of the Litchenberg Figures. He has removed the transformer from a microwave oven and adapted it use the 15,000 volts of electricity to create his pieces. He is currently mastering the ability to shape this wild art into recognizable forms such as Honu and other Hawaii creatures.
