Toni Brou's Profile
I grew up on a hobby farm in rural SW KS, learning to love the creative process while watching my father make what he called "junk art" from found objects. My BFA is in Graphic Design/Illustration from KU. After a series of personal tragedies, I adopted the mantra, "The sun always rises" along with my current fine folk art style. My incorporation of salvaged objects (hubcaps are a favorite) is a metaphor for hope and redemption and serves as a nod to my late father. I am most proud of my 3 biggest pieces of work--my 3 sons.
