Carl and Martin were born into a lineage of artists and teachers. From the beginning of their lives Art has been one of the most central and important aspects of being. Being raised by an artist and teacher, George Leighton Bridge III, they were exposed to a wide range of media with which to explore and create. Museums and Galleries were always frequent family destinations. In their fathers early life he was inspired by the work of his Uncle, Master Sculptor Clark Battle Fitz-Gerald and apprenticed to him for some time. Clark’s son, Stephen Fitz-Gerald, has also followed in his father’s footsteps as he lives and works in Santa Rosa Ca. They feel blessed to have had such a deep immersion in the arts and to have many family members to draw inspiration and to learn from.
