Dear clients and friends,

I hope you are enjoying warmer weather and sweet scent of spring blooms. It is hard to believe it’s already the end of April!

I wanted to re-introduce one of my talented artists, The Recluse. He is based in Indiana and completely self-taught. You might be already familiar with his signature whimsical, endearing paintings. I’m often impressed not only by his talents but also by his childlike curiosity, eccentric visual style, and passion. His recent botanical series truly encompasses his character.

As we approach the eventful month of May, I would like to present special offers on most of the charming pieces by The Recluse. These pieces would make perfect gifts for upcoming Mother’s Day and graduations! We currently offer a free bonus of a catalog and a hand-painted notecard with purchase.

Furthermore, The Recluse also takes commission work. His original portraits make special moments last forever. Please note a photo is required. Portraits of animals and pets are also welcome. I have personally commissioned him to do numerous paintings for myself, friends, and family – and they always surpass my expectations!

I hope you take advantage of our offers this season! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

All the best,

The Artist

The Recluse (b. 1969) is an American Outsider artist based in Indiana. He was raised in a working class family, and lost his parents at an early age. Later in life The Recluse suffered a blood clot, became physically disabled, and socially withdrawn as a result.

Though faced with unexpected challenges and physical limitations, he discovered strength in spirituality and art-making. He finds inspiration in everyday life, painting from memory and his imagination. His work is permeated with nostalgia and a sense of tranquility, while maintaining a streak of roughness.

The Recluse’s work is a reflection of his state of mind, seeking to reconcile the imperfection of reality with gratitude for life. He currently resides in Indiana, and enjoys his solitude.
