Growing up in KC, I remember the painted cows scattered throughout the city. I was in total awe of the designs and colors from the artists. I thought it was so cool that these pieces of art were just outside as public displays, it left an impression on me. What a unique idea, something I had never experienced before. Looking back I can see, it gave me a deeper pride for our city. I’m honored to be an artist with the opportunity to pass those feeling on to the next generation through my artwork. I hope viewing these iconic landmarks painted in vivid color can uplift spirits and gives an enhanced sense of pride for the city that we all love.
