AirUpThere

I’m primarily a self-taught artist, although I was fortunate to have a handful of teachers along the way who recognized my ability and helped me improve (I won’t mention my second grade teacher, for whom I am certain Harry Chapin wrote the song “Flowers are Red.”).

In first grade, my teacher sat watching me draw a picture of my family. While the other kids were drawing stick figures with smiling faces, I was drawing full figures with hands and fingernails.  

“Where did you learn to draw like that?” She smiled.

“Like what?”  I wasn’t quite sure what she meant.

“These hands have fingernails.”  She replied, pointing to my drawing.

I thought to myself, “Of course, silly lady.  Everyone has fingernails.”

She must have spoken to my parents because shortly after, I found myself in weekend classes at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. I treasured those times and the ride into the city with mom or dad, sometimes receiving an extra treat at a local coffee shop on the way. That was in 1966.  

I had occasion in 2008 to revisit the museum for the first time since childhood. As I stepped into the original, marbled main entrance, my heart skipped a beat and my eyes filled with tears. It was there I had learned the world could be a remarkably beautiful place.

Over the years, I have been similarly influenced by other excellent teachers. Fourth grade, sixth grade, high school. In 2011, I was privileged to study with Dru Blair, world renowned airbrush artist and a master of photorealism. His influence not only helped change the way I see the world, but literally liberated my work.

So, that thing you want created? Let me create it.  Call today.
