For September we will be showcasing the artwork of Grant Warford and Linda Sherly.
Grant Warford was born on July 19, in 1991 to Marisa and Reggie Warford in Pittsburgh, PA. He graduated from Muhlenberg High School, in Muhlenberg KY. Though he did not take many formal art classes until college he maintained a strong passion for the arts. Over this time he took personal commissions in digital art and got his first small taste of working as a freelance artist. He continued to work independently as he entered college. In addition, Grant is also an athlete and played as a freshman, at Asbury University. Due to years of knee pain and several surgeries he left basketball his sophomore year to pursue his passion in art. It was this year he also transferred to the University of Kentucky. At the University of Kentucky Grant continued to work on digital commissions however he also added more traditional media to his repertoire. Do in large part to his experiences at the University of Kentucky Grant began to work with combining different media in his works and working more confidently. In his junior year two of his digital works were part of the Shale literary journal.
