i often joke in my workshops that everyone is allowed two questions each + that if anyone needs more they
and i’m an artist. but not the tortured kind. i’m on a mission to make the walls of your home, office or secret lair as memorable as you are.
i’m also a teacher. i offer work shops + caffeine laden posts to jump start your own creative process.
TAKE ME TO THE SHOP.
art can be intimidating. it shouldn’t be. i promise to make it not so.
some paintings may be in the studio. some may be examples of previously painted pieces. either way i can get one to you quickly, often in a variety of sizes to accommodate your current obsession.
I ART CHARLOTTE
i art charlotte is an outreach program.
each month i’ll step out of the studio carrying a load of freshly stroked original paintings to donate to folks who need a little sunshine in their life.
i could use your help.
i’m looking to partner with individuals + corporations.
needs include canvas or other to paint on + ways to reach those who would otherwise never have original art.
your art shouldn’t match your sofa – but if you are desperately seeking silver to go with the new pillows you just bought – i can help. i can accommodate most special requests on a commission. i promise to make it easy. and you will get more than you expect.
the world is full of people and corporations who claim to be authentic, creative, game-changing, innovative, inspiring, and paradigm-shifting. sounds great, but that’s not good enough for me. i want to be with/work with/collect the work of someone who shows fall-down, crazy stupid love for their work. i want to be surrounded by people who are alluring, beguiling, blazing, bursting, epic, frenzied, ravenous, and volcanic. i want passion to erupt.
join me. join a workshop.

- inside the whimsical universe of creativity i believe there is an unknown language that can only be successfully translated by the chosen few whom have an innate ability to take what seems to be complicated and alchemically make it simple. there needs to be the ability to understand perspective and context while undermining the complexities […]

- we were at kenT’s studio last year for an open studio paint night. had such a great time we are taking a big group back this weekend. kent is so laid back in letting you control what you paint while giving advice and tips throughout the time you’re there.
- kenT does a wonderful job making you feel like you can really paint. he is fun, talented and you go home with a momento of a great evening! i also have one of his original paintings proudly hanging in my home and love it!
