I started my art career when I was 5 years old, when my best buddy and I would spend hours on our front porch drawing pictures or cartoons. I wanted to be a cartoon artist.
Being raised on the Navajo Reservation I was exposed to some of the most magnificent scenes of cliffs, canyons, mountains and deserts one could imagine!
I got a BA degree in Graphics and Illustration. I have worked 40 years in different aspects of the art world. I’ve work with book publishers, illustrated children’s books, illustrated for toy companies and have taught art classes for a local college. I’m now doing the thing I love most, painting things that excite me because of their color, contrast, dynamics, and plain old emotional energy they stir in me. My goal is to get the viewer involved with the beauty in the ordinary as well as the extraordinary.
I have started painting miniature paintings for your enjoyment and ownership. Please visit my web site, www.krausemarketeers.
Enjoy, I hope they cause in you some of the emotions I felt in painting them. Stephen Krause
