About

Where your memories begin is where I draw the line!

Hello, my name is Kevin and I'm an...uh...artist...... ALMOST said something different there!

(I'm weird.... sorry....)

Anywho, I have LOVED to draw ever since I was a wee one. Whenever my mom needed me to shut up and quit bugging her, all she did was hand me a piece of paper and pencil and ask me to draw something!

(If ever she found herself without pencil and paper, the leash sufficed...)

Yes, I am and always have been a tortured and downtrodden artist. Sad face...

(I have actually always loved my life, but I'm told I won't fit into the artist community without being depressed, so just play along, ok?)

I used to get into trouble in school because my notebooks were FILLED with doodles and very rarely had any coherent note taking.

(That bit is actually true)

Despite my best efforts, I made it through school and even took a year of Graphic Design at Antonelli College in downtown Cincinnati.

(No, I didn't finish. No I didn't get a degree. Yes, I learned LOTS of cool stuff! Yes, it was TOTALLY worth it!)

At Antonelli, a sweet hippy lady teacher was able to fine tune my drawing a bit, and from there I went out into the world seeking lovers of drawing!

(You know, so I could draw for them and stuff...)

Bearded Artist made its first appearance on Facebook in 2012. It started with posting a photo of a memorial drawing of my girlfriend's father and slowly grew from there!

(That girl and I are now married and REALLY STINKIN' HAPPY!)

After building my Facebook page, doing several in person art shows, and actually winning a "Best in Show" at one of them, starting an Etsy page was the next logical step!

(See! Some artists CAN use logic! Just don't ask me to read a map...)

The Bearded Artist Etsy store is for people who would like to buy original graphite pencil fan art, prints of that art, or get their own custom graphite artwork.

A drawing or print can capture and enhance special moments in life and makes for a precious keepsake anyone will enjoy!

(Especially drawing lovers! Because I draw.... and stuff....)

If you've made it this far--through all of the cheeseball corniness--I just want to thank you for putting up with me!

(And I really hope you enjoy the Bearded Artist Etsy Store!)

YOU ROCK!

    I draw. It's what I do! Mom was complimented for getting a 2 year old to sit still for hours on end. Little did they know, all I needed was pencil and paper and I was all good! My drawing has progressed and I hope to always be improving!
