Hello and welcome! A bit about me... My name is Ian Parrott. I am a 29 year old artist currently working as an art consultant at the Thomas Kinkade Gallery in the Village which is located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I am very fortunate to work there because I get to see the end result of what I want to be, and it is teaching me about the business end of being an artist. Working for the Gallery has also given me the chance to meet some very interesting successful artists who have allowed me to pick their brains. I just celebrated my fifth year of marriage to a woman that still drives me crazy every single day, and we have six wee ones: Loki, Nox, and Nyx (cats); and Bandit, Oreo Cookie, and Don Alejandro de la Vega (dogs). I created this blog to help you--the art lover--stay in the know with what's going on in the gallery and with the artists. Plus, I wanted a creative outlet where I could help spread knowledge of art styles, history, and funkiness that the average person would not normally be exposed to.
