Practices in Kansas

“I am originally from England and have lived in Kansas since I was 12 years old.  As a child I remember visiting my grandfather who worked for Kodak and him letting me sit in his home office that was filled with all types of cameras and found myself drawn to them.  My mother  always insisted in capturing the moment when I was growing up and my mother to this day makes sure to capture the memories.  I have my mother to thank for making sure I stopped to see the beauty that surrounds us everyday and that is where I believe I found my love in photography.  I took my first photography class in middle school and my father gifted me my very first camera when I got to high school.  I continued to take classes through high school and college.  I spent a few years being a portrait photographer but recently have found that I get the most joy in nature photography.”

Cody Brown

Practices in Kansas City, Mo

Cody Brown grew up in a paycheck-to-paycheck family on County Road 24, near a little farm town 30 minutes from Omaha, Nebraska.
Brown soon became a 19-year-old interior design student at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln when he started painting modern abstract pieces in his dorm room that he would load into his trunk to sell to designers in Lincoln and Omaha. The college student was soon taking meetings and working with clients on custom orders.
He graduated in 2009 and joined an interior design company in Lincoln, where he was relegated to “kind of a lackey boy,” he said. He wanted more.   Soon he quit to concentrate on studio art, producing art full time and attending trade shows to build his following.

Quick Facts:

Don opened his first recording studio in the late 80’s.

“When I make a photograph, I am looking for the exceptional moment hidden in ordinary events. I view my surroundings from a slightly different perspective through the lens; cutting through the familiar layers to find a story that might be overlooked by the casual observer.
I have always been drawn to black and white images. Although we live in a world filled with color, I tend to look through my lens with a grayscale palette. I find that the absence of color strips away distractions and brings clarity to an image.
While my photographs are meant to highlight the unexpected, I also strive to find elements that draw in the observer on a personal level. When someone looks at one of my images and can see a part of themselves, that is when it is no longer just a photograph but becomes art.”

Quick Facts:

Don was one of four artists commissioned by the Kansas State Lotto Commission to create a painting representative of the state’s 150th anniversary in 2011

Don Dane has been drawing from an early age and has been especially attracted to western and historical subjects. His art career began after visiting the Western Heritage & Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, OK. It was there he saw first-hand original artwork created by the finest western artist in America. It wasn’t until 2002 that Don decided to leave his corporate job behind and focus on being a full time artist. Dane’s medium ranges from watercolor to oil . He focuses mainly on western themed subjects but does not limit himself to just that. A self-taught artist, Dane uses reference photographs and sketches taken on location. He may spend days at a time gathering his research material from various locations and events. He especially likes spending time on working cattle ranches. “I find the American cattle ranches provide what I call a one stop shop for everything I look for in authenticity of the contemporary cowboy” says Dane.
