August Artist Uncorked - Dylan Stolley

DylanStolley4.jpg

Welcome Dylan Stolley, our Artist Uncorked for the month of August!
 

Dylan states, “Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a camera in one hand & a paintbrush in the other. Growing up in a creative Home, I always loved art & knew I’d be an artist someday.

 

DylanStolley1.jpg

After graduating from UW Oshkosh in 1998 with a BFA in printmaking & sculpture, I went to work immediately at the family business, Stolley Photography. I made a career out of being a photographer, but what I really loved to do was paint.

Following a trip to Belize in 2012 I got the itch to start painting again—it had been years since I picked up a paintbrush—but once I did, I was hooked again.”
