Blue Water Design features original watercolor and acrylic paintings by Charlotte, NC artist Robert Paris.
About the artist:
I grew up in Waynesboro, VA where I learned to love the outdoors and attended and graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta in 1985 with a degree in Visual Communications.

After college, I moved to Charlotte, NC and worked for several advertising agencies before joining one of the nations largest banking companies - eventually earning a creative director's position. My career with the bank spanned 13 years, 3 corporate name changes and countless mergers.

Today, I makes his home in Charlotte, NC with my wife Heather, and children Morgan, John and my golden retrievers, Annie and Sophie.

If you don't find me in the garden planting something colorful or on the lake, I'm probably in his studio trying to put images to paper or canvas.
