Jimmy Descant, the Rocketman, grew up in New Orleans and has lived and created his art in Salida, CO. for the past 7 years. Before becoming a full-time, self-taught sculptor he was a mechanic, pinball machine refurbisher, and salesman before touring the country and the world with bands for 15 years. Always eclectic in his art, life, and lifestyle, Jimmy bills himself as a Severe ReConstructivist in his search for raw materials from the Golden Age of American manufacturing.
