W. Maurice Clyma - Woodturner transistioning to Watercolorist
Maurice is a native Tulsan and retired Architect from CJC Architects, Inc. where he served as Partner & Senior Vice President.
His interest in the art of woodturning began in 1995 when he bought his first lathe at a garage sale and joined the Northeastern Oklahoma Woodturners Association. He was honored to serve the 2000-2001 term as President. Maurice gained his training in woodturning by attending classes and workshops lead by many premier woodturners. He continued to expand his interest into adding more color, texture and carving into his work . His work has been shown in many shows and galleries over the past 25 years.
His membership in the Tulsa Artists Guild for many years and the physical demands of woodturning has led him to a current transition period to watercolor painting.
