Blake Hughes

Artist Bio

I was born and raised in southern WV, the son of a coal miner and dental assistant, I grew up around a few hundred people and lived 20 minutes from a town of just over 7,000. I was educated at Marshall University, achieving a BFA with a focus on painting in 2010, becoming the first in my immediate family to obtain a higher education. I currently reside and work in Columbus Ohio as an artist and full-stack programmer.
