Art Quotes


Welcome to the new and hopefully improved website. After abandoning the site for a few years I have come back to it and will start giving it some love and attention. The first step I have taken is to make it mobile friendly, which hasn't been easy as I'm a visual person, not a code person! I have persisted though and it seems to be working on the devices I have checked. A lot of the internal pages are still not updated though.

Fine Artists

I haven't added a new artist profile since 2007 but they're still all very interesting to browse through. Each profile includes an interview and a gallery of images by the artist. I plan to start adding new artists after I finish updating so let me know if you're a working artist and would like to be profiled.

Famous Artists

Profiles of famous artists with varying degrees of information on each artist. All of them have quotations listed, while some have biographies, paintings, and more. There's a focus on painters as that's what I love most.
