I MAKE THINGS

I make stuff by hand. I can't help it. I used to make maps and build houses, websites, and furniture. I actually still build several pieces of fine furniture each year for people who ask me. But fine art has become the focus of my workday as of late. I paint things and post them to my Blog (this website) and my Instagram page (@skyecooleyartwork). A couple local galleries show my work, too. Everything is for sale, just contact me directly if you want to buy something. I enjoy producing new work just about every day and plan to stick with it for quite a while. After a few more years, however, I might just up and ride around the world on a motorcycle. On a Suzuki DR650 if you were wondering. I'll start by going south. Good chance the paint brushes will be along for the ride. Wanna come?
