I turn rocks and clay into color-drenched, earth pigments for handmade watercolors. They’re called Paleo Paints. The process I use to get the pigment is how it was done from the first time a human slapped a painted handprint on the wall of a cave.
As I make paint for my own paintings, I’ll make extra and those will be for sale at my Etsy shop. All of my paints and palettes are small-batch produced and will always be available in very limited quantities.
Paleo Paint made from my local stones, clay, or herbs are arranged into palette collections called “Soul of the Ozarks”. When I use source materials from other places, I’ll note that in the product descriptions.
I use stones, clay, and herbs to make dry earth pigments and watercolor paint, for accenting my nature art, and to add color to my native clay sculptures. The pigments, watercolor palettes, and artwork will all be offered for sale at Etsy, and through my brick-and-mortar outlet at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas.

Your mailing address and birthday are not required, but if you fill that out, I’ll send you a sample dot postcard for your birthday featuring whatever colors I have on hand at the time.
