The artistDon Weisgarber grew up in rural Ohio, graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in biology and English literature, and served three years in the U.S. Army.

The artist works primarily in watercolor but will sometimes paint in acrylics, especially for the more abstract paintings. As you will see from the prints, his technique is mostly representational. He is self-taught, having had no formal art training. He attended more than a few workshops while first learning to paint, but for the most part now paints in his studio.
