Welcome to November’s Featured Artist! Meet Travis Usher, a local artist in Joshua Tree, California. Let’s learn about his creative background!
Welcome, Travis, tell us about yourself, when did you start creating?
I try to paint what I see the best I can. I think like most people I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. Some of us become more obsessed with it than other’s but I drew on everything and luckily my parents encouraged it. I just recently saw one of my first signed finished pastel chalk painting that I can remember at my mom’s house, I was nine at the time. I started painting with acrylics a couple years later and finally found oil paint shortly after high school and fell in love with the process.
