I turn rocks and clay into color-drenched, earth pigments for handmade watercolors. They’re called Paleo Paints because this is how it was done from the first time a human made a painted handprint on the wall of a cave.
This page is under construction but will eventually give highlights of the process and shows the paints and pigments I use in my paintings. Most of them will be for sale on Etsy and in my online shop. All of my paints and palettes are small-batch produced and will 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”. They’re on sale now and you can find them, while supplies last, at the locations mentioned in the paragraph below. I’ll also offer prepared earth pigments as powders ready for you to make your own paint. The release date for that product is December 2018.
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 on this site, 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.
Here’s a few of the posts on the website about the work I’m doing with pigments and nature art:
