This is how the Revere Beach National Sandsculpting Festival website discribes Chris Guimto:
Chris has been sculpting sand for about 10 years. He and his wife Marianne own and operate the Sand Box in Key West - FL, where they hold corporate challenges, team building events, school workshops and teach sculpting to anyone who wants to learn. When not sculpting sand Chris is a certified wildlife catch and release hunter, specialized in gators, crocs and iguanas. This is usually reflected in his sculptures, which are often an animal life and are so realistic they seem alive.
