Welcome to Holbrook Art Productions.

> US NAVY – My talent was recognized when I was granted the opportunity to create my ship’s first newspaper. My news bulletins, editorials, and cartoons resulted in requests from my shipmates for me to draw portraits of their girlfriends and even their pets. Graphite pencil drawings of those requests were successful and pleased my shipmates. I decided to study art books to learn even more.

>Honorable discharge from the Navy – I moved to Atlanta, Georgia where I got a job, but I also used the GI bill to enroll in the Atlanta Graphics Art school. I progressed to rendering pastel chalk on illustration board to create colorful portraits and fantasy art as well as a wall size mural reproduction of Rivendale from Lord of the Rings.

> Marietta Art Gallery liked my art enough to request three of my best pieces to be hung up for sale in their art gallery. Although I did have offers for their purchase, I kept raising the prices because I didn’t really want to let them go.

>Chicago – I got married and moved to the suburbs of Chicago. Besides having a regular job, I decided to enroll in the Schaumburg Graphics Art Institute. In addition to that, I also enrolled in the Schaumburg portrait art class and another class for watercolors. My education continued as I enrolled at Harper Junior College to take courses that incuded computer basics, Cobol software, and marketing.

>Art Business – Ambitious and eager to make my mark on the art world, I started my own mail-order art business called: Fantastic Fantasy. I was able to sell my art illustrated stories using a post office box. It was successful although I didn’t make as much money from it as I had hoped.

>Halloween art – My favorite time of the year encouraged me to start creating Halloween art for the fun of it. Once I was on the internet and contacted others who had similar interests, I made friends with a man named John Pelico of Killer Pumpkins. He liked my art and encouraged me to learn digital art such as photoshop.

>Digital Art – It took me weeks to learn digital art techniques before I could actually create anything, but I caught on fast and made progress. That led to creating my own website called Twilight Art Zone and a new business name called Holbrook Art Productions.

>Native American Indian art evolved as a higher plain to achieve the challenge I needed to improve my talents. I was able to sell some of my art on Cafepress but then found Fine Art America. This was a gold mine for me. I challenged myself to do better and I could feel myself growing. I loved doing landscapes and wildlife so this was a great category for me.

>Oriental Art – I fell in love with oriental art for its beauty and because it could teach me many other things. On this journey I started studying a great variety of flowers, trees, landscaping, and a different way of expressing my art. As to date, I have released my newest oriental art: PEACEFUL JOURNEY, JOY, and ORIENTAL SPLENDOR. I have more ready to be released and on the drawing board.

>I believe in a supreme power too. This art I do is a journey in life because I research my subjects so thoroughly before I ever start to design what inspires me to share with others. I believe that supreme power from above helps to guide me somehow as my eyes and heart are opened as I open up to the creator.
