Hi, I'm Robert Quarles and this is my work space. I started painting last year as a positive way to cope with stress and the day to day pressure that comes with life. I have always enjoyed creativity, but most of my previous artistic expression has been through music.
Over the past year, my garage naturally became "my go to place" to work on paintings and collage. I use readily available household items and hardware store accessible materials in the creation and subject of my art. Items such as latex paint, stain, rollers, sponges, pallets, etc. Although I do work on canvas I prefer to paint directly on wood panels that can weather the harsh conditions of a Houston summer.
The art I create, the materials I use, and where I create it is as much a result of necessity for my lifestyle, as it is a creative choice or statement. I think the end result speaks to me, and I hope it will to you also.
Please check back from time to time as I update my website. Thank you!
