Artist: Kume Bryant
I am a self taught artist. I love to express the life’s simple moments that make you smile, and dream. I thank God for making this artist's life possible… I love it!
I earned a degree in advertising/graphic art in '92. Right after graduation I landed a job in a small print shop. I worked until my son came along in '96. My husband and I decided that I would stay home to raise him. I continued to work as a part-time freelancer graphic artist until year 2013. In 2000, I added direct marketing for its flexibility so I can be with my son. The flexibility was great, but it took me away from home in the evenings which were my favorite time spent with family. After 5 years, it was time to think of a change.
Although, I have always enjoyed creating art, the thought of painting stayed in the back of my mind, not having the courage to come out.
I have the most supportive husband. His idea, what seemed small at the time, but his way of nudging me which encouraged me to paint today. He brought home a photo of a coworker going camping on a horse, and asked me to paint that for him just for fun. The painting turned out well. I had much fun doing and made me wanting to do more. I bought me a book on painting and learned some techniques…that was in 2006. I am still learning and I am sure that I will never stop learning the awesomeness of the art world.
When I paint, I tend to forget the world around me exists...
