Robert (Bob) is a 65-year-old native of Colorado. Being the third of ten children, growing up, Bob took advantage of every opportunity to grow his artistic personality. From the age of five, Bob drew on anything he could get his hands on, from notebooks to typing paper to cardboard. A self-taught artist, Bob has explored with ink and watercolor, but his true passion lies in pencil drawings. He adds a unique twist by drawing on watercolor paper, which he feels really brings out the texture of his rustic drawings. Bob is especially inspired by nature. It is natural for him to visualize potential artwork out of his surroundings. He particularly enjoys re-creating textures and making the artwork his own. He initially kept his artwork to himself until his friend “Spud” encouraged him to share his creations with others.
