Hand Painted Wood Plaques
I am a Las Vegas Native, born right here in Vegas, before cell phones. I have always loved fine art, and began drawing and painting as a young child. I did my very first Oil portrait of my two nieces, without any formal training at the time, at the ripe age of 13.
My brother still has it hanging in their home today. As a kid, growing up in Las Vegas, we paid many a visit to the local Buffet for family night out. I would flip the paper place mat over, and grab a Keno crayon and start drawing, usually a face. I would always sign it and give to the Buffet Busser. I have many custom portraits all over the country, and I am internationally known for my art from my Etsy web site.
Kudea is my brush name, I have pre-Kudea work from coast to coast. In the early 90's I took a 15 year Hiatus from my Art to pursue Dance where I met my former life partner in 2001, in 2010 he inspired me to pick up my artwork again, and we split in 2015 so I could freely pursue my art career. No regrets. I began doing art and craft fairs in April of 2015, and have not stopped.
I paint mostly with Acrylic, many have told me that my paintings look like Oil, or a photograph, Wow, these are very high complements, it is not easy getting acrylic to resemble oil, or better yet a photograph. My Novelty products came about, during my first craft fair, I found that I needed a product to sell that is more affordable for the average shopper, so I started painting miniature plaques, which lead to larger sizes which let to the Novelty frames, and pet novelties.
