Branching out

For some time, I've been gathering the gumption to put some real effort into a fine art career. I'm not saying I'll be putting in my notice at the regular job any time soon, but I'm at least looking at options and learning the ropes.

The first step I have taken is to create a separate website dedicated to my art. I will be maintaining my Cates Creative site for business, but all fine art inquiries and information will not go on

At I have some examples of my colored pencil work and provide in introduction to my current body of work, Building Memories, which is a series of portraits and memories brought together across generations through photographs.

An example below of my father, my uncle Doug and their friend Mike.
