From the tender age of 8, Devon Ross wanted to become an artist. "My family encouraged me to be creative. Whether it was crayons, paints, or simply exploring my world, I always felt free to discover my inner spirit." Growing up, Devon's family often moved, looking for new horizons to explore. Europe was a favorite destination and with brothers and sisters in tow, Devon spent hours painting and drawing the peaceful landscapes of the European countryside. "Growing up, I was fascinated with the color, texture and beauty of grasses, leaves and trees."
Devon's love of antiquities was the inspiration for a collection of personal treasures which are proudly displayed in the artist's studio. "I often use one of my beloved items as inspiration for a new piece or collection. That way, when you look at my work you know there is a piece of my memory in each creation. Devon's second passion is architecture. Having worked on the interior restoration of many fine buildings, he says, "If I am not traveling the world sketching, I am at home with my family enjoying our historic home and garden."
