David Skidmore

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a self-taught, amateur artist living in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I like to arrange colorful shapes and experimental patterns in quilt-like compositions to convey the feeling of real-world people, places, and things. I started painting at age 40, after meeting my biological father when I was an adult and learning that he is an artist in Toronto. My two great art influences are my adoptive father, who shared his love of modern art and design, and my biological father, who inspired me to try painting.
