Favorites Week: Mixed Media

All this week the Daily Palette will be celebrating some of our favorite Iowa-connected artists working in mixed media.

Aaron Butcher graduated from Clarke College with a BFA in 2005.  He lives in Dubuque, Iowa with his wife Abigail and his two daughters.

Combining both abstract and literal imagery inspires my drawings.  My work is a response to spontaneous mark making, the search for and creation of sketched images, enhanced by the addition of collage.  The result is funny, unique and sometimes weird characters that invite the viewer to respond with their own stories.
