Lonnie Q. Ingram was born in Washington, D.C. He moved to Baltimore in 2007, where he established his art and design business, Lonnetrix Fine Wire Art. Self-taught, he created a new style of wire sculpture at the age of 6, using twisty ties.
Educated at The Corcoran, Duke Ellington and Howard University, Mr. Ingram embraced his artistic education, intent on sharing his gift with the world. Inspired by the work of Alexander Calder, he uses his technique and 28-gauge wire to create innovative sculptures.
His work has been on display in various locations including Baltimore, Washington, D. C. and New York City. Mr. Ingram has created pieces for former President Obama, the cast of American Chopper and several celebrities.
