More About Us
Sean Leahy graduated in 2005 from Webster University in St. Louis with a BA in Studio Art. After spending a semester in Vienna, Austria, he returned to St. Louis and began working for the area’s premiere ice sculpting company, Ice Visions…
During his six years at Ice Visions, Sean carved thousands of sculptures, managed hundreds of set-ups and deliveries, and performed ice-carving demonstrations around the city for organizations such as the St. Louis Blues, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the University City Loop Ice Carnival.
Sean’s competed in several local and national competitions, taking first place and earning a silver medal at Mt. Holly, New Jersey’s Fire and Ice Competition in 2009. He also assisted in launching the ice sculpting program at Southwest Illinois Community College while teaching classes for Forest Park Community College’s culinary program.
In 2009, at Boots Contemporary Art Space, Sean’s art show entitled “A Melting” ⎯ with three multi-block carvings, an ice bar featuring two luges, photographs, a stop-motion video and a live demonstration ⎯ proved that ice can be anything from a unique centerpiece at a wedding to a more conceptual work of art.
In the late summer of 2010, Sean, with the support of his new wife and all their family and friends, decided to take the plunge and bring his creativity, hard work, and professionalism to Central Texas.
He’s been recognized by the National Ice Carving Association, NICA, as a Certified Professional Carver, and Ice Educator. In 2013 he was elected as the 2nd Vice President on the 2013, striving to provide the region with superior quality, innovative ideas, and most importantly, fun and quirky ways to add a new dimension to life’s special occasions.
