    Mike Ousley
    Mike Ousley is a native of Southeastern Kentucky and grew up in Floyd County. The experience of a life in the mountains has shaped the attitudes that inform his painting practice. I grew up in the small and very isolated Mudlick Branch Hollow, in Hippo, Kentucky. I played in the woods, creeks, and up and down the roads in this holler and that one. I was alway's surrounded by unique stories and character's from a very young age and I credit those folks for a great deal of inspiration.

    As a student I remember walking past the Kentucky Folk Art Center everyday. I became mesmerized by the paintings of Charley Kinney, Hugo Sperger and Tim Sizemore. I also became influenced by a very thriving Appalachian Art's community in Morehead. I found inspiration through storytellers, old-time Fiddler's, wood carver's and others. My approach to painting has remained rooted in my local folk culture and folklore.

    Introducing...
    The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade.
