Abstract art is my new passion. Sumptuous colors and forms allow me to put my soul and heartstrings and experience into my new paintings whether watercolor or oils. I think in rhythms, lines and forms. I have been represented in 19 galleries in four states. I welcome new galleries for my abstract art.

Graphic design is my first love. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are my tools for creating flyers, catalogs, and corporate ads. My ads & product graphics have been seen in Walmart, Home Depot, Purina, in many states from Memphis, TN to Japan and China. As a newspaper ad designer I worked for Rust Communications throughout the MidWest USA. Also a newsletter editor for six universities and nonprofits.


Mountains & waterfalls in the Colorado Rockies and Smoky Mtns. are my inspiration for creating paintings, photos, poetry, and songs. I’ve won over 80 photography awards in addition to the 40+ awards for ptgs. I climb mtns and dangle over cliffs for the perfect shot. I’m honored to take you on my adventures and share my photography with you. To purchase prints visit arthaven-studios.pixels.com.
