Potlick

Born: 1948

Hometown: COLUMBIA

Based in: Columbia, South Carolina, USA

I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA in 1948. From a very early age I began to draw and paint and now at 74 I am still doing it. After serving in the Army I came back to the US and enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute, where I earned a degree in painting and printmaking. In 1975 I moved to New York City, where I had a painting studio in a loft in the garment district. While In New York, I produced a number of large abstract oil paintings while I studied and did research at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. In 1980 I moved to Southern California, where I had studios in Ventura and Ojai. During this time I painted a number of landscapes and narrative paintings. In 1983 I moved to Japan, where I lived for 2 years and studied traditional Japanese painting and scroll making. I had a number of solo exhibitions while living there. In 1985 I returned to Southern California and continued to paint until I moved to South Carolina in 2002. I now maintain a studio here in Columbia, South Carolina, where I paint every day.

More About Potlick

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Beauty

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

For the past 2 or 3 years I have been making very small, 4"x5" watercolor paintings of insects and ancient artifacts. I start with a photograph of my subject, which I upload to my iPad and then make my painting using the iPad image as a guide for form and color. I work with very small pen points and watercolor brushes to achieve the finest detail possible and create an image as true to the original as I can. In the end, I have an image I can be proud of.
