Travis KrauseLearn more about Travis
Travis Krause and his
is a Colorado-based artist and high school art teacher. We met Travis at the Denver Fly Fishing Show and were drawn to his vibrant water color style art and were stoked to bring his unique style to our footwear.
Here's some perspective from Travis on why he does what he does...
"Some days we lose ourselves in our daily duties. My artwork provides a moment to pause, allowing the viewer to wipe off the grimy residue of daily life and reveal what gets covered up and hidden. Taking the time to remember this power and beauty, is a gateway to increased productivity, creativity.
In pursuing my passion of painting, I bring the beauty of the outdoors inside to serve my clients with imagery that reminds them to trust and celebrate their own hidden beauty and power. Every painting is an attempt to capture fleeting moments, vivid color, surprise, mystery and delight for the viewer to reinvigorate their own natural sense of wonder and creative potential."
