Robert David Korhonen is a Professional Artist. He has worked in the art industry for 25 years and has countless satisfied customers. Originally from Detroit, he has a BFA degree in Advertising Design and currently runs Art & Soul Graphics in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. After graduating from Detroit's College for Creative Studies, he entered the local art scene. While honing his drawing and painting skills, he also turned into a professional quick sketch portrait artist. He utilizes his talents to create fine art and marketing for national digital advertising campaigns and art gallery shows. 'I use acrylics, watercolors, colored pencils and computer skills to express myself through my art. I've always been involved in some form of creativity. I began my journey in pencil drawing, then into painting with acrylics, moved on to digital vector art on the computer. I'm especially enjoying acrylic painting medium. I've always tried to put my own 'mark' on whatever I create. I have enjoyed delving into colorful techniques which, I think, lends itself more easily to convey the ideas I have in my head onto a visual medium. I am always looking for subject matter in my surroundings. The oceans, lakes, wildlife and scenic beauty of this Florida landscape provide endless possibilities, as well as the people I encounter in life and through photographs. I try to capture not only what I see, but to draw the viewer into my work and make an interactive experience. I enjoy putting paint to canvas.' He exhibits in regional juried exhibitions with artwork that shows true emotion and beauty of the subject matter. A fine line of light and shadow characterizes his crisply detailed subjects. 'I feel so alive when I create and I want to inspire that feeling in others!' His vision is to create passion people can feel.
