Viewing Gallery : Leading Auto Sculptors and Designers Credit Dad for Creative Calling

(5) 1

The auto industry roots run deep for Buick Interior Design Director Liz Wetzel who draws creative leadership influence from her father.

Buick Creative Sculptor Matt Brancheau refers to his father as a ‘true artist’ and source of inspiration.

College for Creative Studies Provost and VP of Academic Affairs, SooShin Choi, advocates early identification of creative talent by parents.

The Lys family is one of several within Buick where offspring have followed their fathers into a vehicle design career. Roman (pictured right) has both sons sculpting within GM Design, Robert (pictured left) and brother Daniel.

Robert Lys, lead sculptor, credits education and training for taking the innate creative talent he received from his dad to another level.
