New Addition - Mark Kohler

Born in Austin, watercolorist Mark Kohler depicts the independent spirit of the modern working cowboy with all the admiration he feels for his proud subjects. "I applaud the values and self-sufficiency of the working cowboy. Each painting becomes an opportunity to portray my subjects as they deserve to be, with dignity."

Kohler was trained as an illustrator, and is a perfectionist by nature. He gets to know each of his subjects personally and has spent the past two decades traveling in Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, Montana, and California compiling images of working cowboys with which he portrays this disappearing icon.

New Arrival - Joey Blazek

Joey, born in Beaumont, Texas has remained in the area most of his life. In 1976, he received a BFA from Lamar University in graphic design, spending many extra hours of life drawing, painting and watercolor under the tutelage of Jerry Newman. Newman profoundly influenced how he would think, see and translate images to paper and canvas. Blazek continued to draw from these skills throughout his career in graphic design as a creative director, photographer and illustrator. See More of Joey's Work
