been painting since the early age of eleven but only became concerned about

You have to know the rules before you break them, and this is where Ty learned
Today Ty’s style is a mixture of whimsical fantasy and skewed perceptions.
He has a wide range of mediums that he has worked with, such as oils, watercolor,
pastels and pencils to name a few. Ty now is concentrating his work to be
created in pastels. He currently resides in Oklahoma City, were he conceptualizes
and produces his whimsical body of art. Ty has done numerous commissions for
private collectors, and currently exhibits his art throughout the United States.
“Through my art, I am inviting children into the art world, with images
that appeal to them and to the child in us.” If you are interested in
