One Grain at a Time is a blog dedicated to the art and business of sand sculpture and the ephemeral arts. My name Sean Fitzpatrick, I am also known in business circles as Fitzy the Snowman. (I promise to reveal the origins of this alias as this blog unfolds) I am an ephemeral artist by trade and owner of the critically aclaimed Fitzy Snowman Sculpting. I began experimenting with snow as a sculpting medium over 20 yeas ago. Since then I expanded my field of expertise to include other mediums such as sand, ice, pumpkins and fruit. The focus of my business is to provide corporate and private clients art, entertainment and exposure. In recent years I have expanded my services to include team building, motivational speaking and educational programs for the public and private sectors

In addition to offering information about the creative side of sand sculpture and ephemeral sculpture , I will also cover the business side of running a successful sculpting company as well as offer tips on health and fitness, marketing and other random topics.
