Chuck and I left the corporate world in 1998 so that Chuck
could pursue a career as an artist. We sold our home in the
Dallas Area, bought an RV and we traveled around the United States,
Canada and Mexico. Our travel destination was dependent on where Chuck wanted to
paint and he paints almost every day.
While Chuck was painting, I wanted to become involved in art,
to be a part of his pursuit. I had no interest in being
an artist, so I started building web sites for artists. Now, I
build sites for a number of wonderful artists, an art school, and
While watching Chuck struggling to find the right art supplies and
the best equipment, I began asking about how to find the right
equipment. Being around many artists, I saw they were all
having the same problems, finding good supplies and equipment.
This frustration seemed to hit all levels of artists from the very
experienced to the person that only paints once in awhile.
After listening to the many, many discussions of what is best and
where to find it, watching the art instructors answer the same questions
over and over, I thought I would try to find the best products and bring
them together in one location. That location is Wind River Arts.
We want Wind River Arts to be a location the artist can go to and
find the best equipment and products. The best linens with a
variety of primings mounted on the surfaces that meets the needs of the artist, the finest taborets, the most
fantastic easels, and other items that are hard
to find. We also want Wind River Arts to have an educational side
to help artists grow and improve in their artistic efforts.
Although we now have a home in Richmond, TX we still travel 5-6
months of the year with Chuck painting and teaching. We truly enjoy seeing
and working with our artists friends and customers.
Chuck and I want you to enjoy the site, visit often, and if you have
any questions to please contact us directly.
