Artist Bio

Jonas and I are husband and wife, we first met in Art school in 1996 all the way out in Missouri. We always imagined we would have our own studio, because creating is a part of us, like an extra limb. We have evolved the studio from solely my artwork, to both of our artwork, and now we’re growing into something new with a collaboration where we both work on pieces together. We do all the work ourselves right down to the printing.

 

Main Subject

Animals

 

Materials and Techniques

Jonas and I resort to the basics when it comes to producing our art. We start every piece with a pencil drawing and pen and ink. From there the process takes us to color comps, then perhaps paint or colored pencil. Ultimately it ends up in the computer where we refine color and line to create the finished work which is produced as prints.
