We are a family of artists. Karen and Dana met while undergraduate art students in Texas and were subsequently married before heading to graduate school. The following years they spent time living and making art in a personally-built studio/cabin in central Kentucky sans running water and electricity. In that time Dana began to build his art career and spent time making video art with artist friends while traveling to Chicago. They eventually moved to Chicago for a short time and then finally returned to Kentucky settling in the Cincinnati metro region where they have been living since. Dana and Karen both continue to actively create and exhibit art their paintings, drawings and murals. They raised two, now adult, sons who eventually also became artists; one going so far as to marry an artist wife he met while an undergrad art student.
