Born in Washington D.C. and raised in Alexandria VA. Constant exposure to public sculpture led to his decision to become a sculptor at the early age of nine. Starr enlisted in the Marine Corps and served a 13 month tour in Vietnam, which would remain a deep secret from fellow students at VCU as an art major, after his return. Moved to New York to experience the real NY art world while living with accomplished artist Larry Zox. Starr has now returned to Richmond and is about to have his second solo show on first Friday in October.
