Robert Held III, Coral Springs Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement I started painting and sketching about 15 years ago. Like many others it was my hobby for several years. Then I broke into the sales aspect of the art business. So far it has been fun and exciting to say the least!!! I enjoy creating paint and digital abstracts. This type of art is always fun and fresh! I hope to continue creating for many, many more years to come.
