Welcome! My Name is Wayne Headley
... It's in my blood, sculpting is my passion!
Like my grandfather, sculpting has come quite naturally to me. Still, I continue to explore and develop as an artist, enjoying and employing various materials, styles and techniques.
I find inspiration, mainly from the human condition. Our joys, our struggles, the relationships built along our journey through life. All these experiences are well worth the effort, to capture, create and celebrate through my art.
To me, sculpture provides the opportunity for unique personal expression. My hope is to beautify our environment, enhance and inspire others who appreciate this timeless form of art. Of special note to me, is to recognize the outstanding achievements it others, by creating custom awards that celebrate the individual.
Wayne’s ability to capture the likeness and personality in his sculpture “Yes We Can’ which includes the very recognizable figures, President Obama, Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela, so intrigued us, we knew he had to be involved in the creating of a special custom sculpture of our founders as we prepared to honor 100 years of brotherhood.
In this centennial piece for our Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Wayne’s work well captures the likeness of our founders the Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse and Honorable Charles I. Brown. It continues to amaze to us all how Wayne was able to find the likeness of these men from just a few very old photos.
We now proudly display this commemorative bust in the entrance of our Phi Beta Sigma’s Fraternity headquarters in Washington D.C.
Thank you Mr. Headley
