Rader's Artshop


As an artist, I enjoy drawing and painting many things, such as animals, people, cars, Amish life, fantasy art, and sometimes anything that's out of the ordinary. Versatile in many types of media, including acrylics, oils, pastels, pencils, and airbrushes, I can create almost anything. Often I start with a rough idea that I sketch on paper, then I refine my sketches until my idea looks satisfying to me. After my sketch is complete, I transfer my image to canvas or illustration board so I can begin the painting.

I earned my B.F.A. with a major in illustration from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1990.
