Tyree Broadway

Kalamazoo, MI, United States

I have for as long as I can remember been able to look at a picture, image, or person and reproduce their likeness. Ever since I can remember I’ve conjured imaginative ways to express my imagination as well. I love to make people smile. My art has made this happen for those around me since a very early age. I’m a self taught artist. I’ve been creating since the age of 3. I’m 37 now. I started off drawing and painting. I would gift drawing or paintings to those in church as child. Often my parents would give me a piece of paper to draw on while we were at church so I would stop being so disruptive, fidgety, and/or stir crazy. This served to feed my creative cravings. The accolades from those around me as I painted and sketched only encouraged me to continue to paint and draw. With time I only got better. It’s my hope to inspire kids with the art I create. Therefore I incorporate the textures and animals I was drawn to as a child. In my experience there seems always a copious amount of media to choose from, but a dearth of time to use them all. With the outlook that each piece of media I use adds an essential color, glance, texture, shadow, element, effect etc., much of my work is multi-layered and multi-textured and multi-media. Every media has it's unique hue. I try to showcase every color I see in an image, and sourcing from different media is how I achieve this.
