Description Here is a beautiful landscape image from one of my original acrylic paintings. There are many subtle colors in the palette which means it will fit the decor of about any room you place it in!
Toni Grote, beautfiul rural Iowa Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I am blessed to be an artist and am honored when my art connects with someone in a way that is meaningful and brings happiness to their life. God has given me an awesome talent, I am so thankful that I paid attention to it and painted down this journey of faith.
I attended Iowa State University and was enrolled in the Graphic Design program. This was my major for three years before I switched to a different major. Although I believe my college classes are invaluable, I would still consider myself self-taught. I have been working at being an artist for close to 17 years now. I have experimented with different mediums, subject matters and being that I am self-published have made the efforts to learn about marketing and the business end of being an artist.
I am a versatile, prolific Iowa born and raised artist. I work with the mediums of acrylics, alkyds, watercolor and a mixed media of watercolor and colored pencil. My subject matter ranges from snowmen to horses and cattle to fruit and landscapes. All of my art is inspired by the connection I have to Iowa and the serene beauty that I see around me.
I have started a daily painting project, where I try and create/post at least one painting a day. So far it has been a great adventure. Please check out my Blog and Daily Paintings at www.artisttonigrote.blogspot.com
THANK YOU for your purchase of my art. I really appreciate my customers, I have met the nicest people through my art. Take care!
