I’ve known Dee Jay Bawden since I was in first grade. He’s always been a lot of fun, but the great thing about him is he went after his dream. He always wanted to be a sculptor. He spent years of hard work, losing everything he had, but never gave up. Now he is a well known master sculptor and owner of Total Statue. His work can be seen all over the world — in fact, look at https://www.totalstatue.com/custom-art-portfolio.html to see examples of his work. He’s married to the wonderful Deana Johansen Bawden and his sons are sculptors, too, working with their dad. What a great guy he is, and what an example to those trying to achieve their dreams!
