GRAHAM CREATIVE CREATIVITY We are all a part of nature. Our energies interweave. The source of my creativity is inspired by nature especially, but also personal transformation, detail observations of everything, and observing color, texture, and light. I rely on intuition and synchronicity often "letting a painting lead the way" thus keeping creative momentum as the painting emerges . However, the freedom to change courses along the way and to be aware that each choice will be just as important for the finished painting is quite important as well. By letting go of desired outcomes opens yourself to inspiration where anything is possible! The artist exposes the essence of the element he portrays, causing the viewer to perceive it in another, truer light, and to realize that his prior perception was deficient. BIOGRAPHY Graham Creative Studio represents Fine Art, Limited Edition Reproductions, and Handcrafted Recycled Garden Art creations. My career as a professional artist exceeds 30 years teaming with art galleries, corporate accounts, interior designers, and private interest art collectors.

Work History

My creativity was encouraged quite early in life experimenting with various media for mural design, illustration, photographic projects, publishing projects, and advertising design. I attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota Florida. During this period my interest in painting was ignited by trips to Sarasota Beach, the local Spanish architecture, and the surrounding tropical landscape. Since that time I have dedicated my creativity in fine arts, graphic design, and illustration. I have participated successfully with galleries, solo and group exhibits, curated exhibits and competitions, corporate exhibits, local and regional art fairs, private collections, created and published illustrations for books, posters, marketing, and advertising projects. I enjoy and welcome the variety.
