Contact DeepGroover  Facebook.

     DeepGroover is from Houston, Texas, USA. His sister is Elwing-(V) who also has art displayed in the Glittering Caves.
     DeepGroover began sending these medieval and fantasy model photos to Varda in June 26, 2006, adding this type to his large number of military models. He takes parts of sets and various objects to create figurines and settings, then decorates them.  His work has won numerous awards including the Nationals (a few shown below), and he has also been a judge at modeling shows. His figures are used in exhibits in the museum in the USS Lexington Aircraft Carrier (letter below).
    On April 7, 2006, photographs of his models, by permission, started going into the Glittering Caves. A great thank you goes to his talented father (now deceased) who created many of the photos, with DeepGroover doing the photos since 2014.

Letter from DeepGroover-(T):

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

I'm pleased to inform you all the scale model exhibit on the USS Lexington aircraft carrier in Corpus Christi will officially open Memorial Day at 10am. There is supposed to be a formal ribbon cutting ceremony, and media will be there to cover it. This exhibit has taken five years to complete, and features over 370 model airplanes and ships....the largest single display of its kind in the state. Over 120 modelers from 16 states and 5 countries donated their time and effort to make this happen....and I'm proud to be among them.

My pilot and crew figures are featured with many of the airplane models, and its possible I'll be called on to provide more. As far as I know I'm the only one who contributes figures to this exhibit. The plan is for the exhibit to be a permanent part of the museum, even though on occasion some of the models may rotate in and out, or go on loan to other museums. So, for those of you who've never seen the museum, or those of you who just haven't been in a long time, now there's a new reason to consider it.

I'm so honored to contribute something for it, and basically its a dream come true. Having some of my work in a museum is something many only dream of. I can cross this off my bucket list.

For more information on the museum, or the model display, please visit the official website www.usslexington.com .Thanks for all your encouragement and support. Bye for now.
