Kermit began to love art at a very early age where the enjoyment of assembling
model toys, drawing, and paint by numbers was the center of his artistic hobby.
During his years in elementary school, he was one of the four best artists in his
class. The passion and execution of his artwork continued into Jr. and Sr. High
School where he remained one of the top artists of his class. He continued his
artistic talent by majoring in Art at East Texas State University where he compiled
several portfolios and works of art.
Over the years, Kermit’s work has been entered into a few art shows, including
the Fort Worth Links’ Lawn Art Show, where he won Ribbon Awards. A few of his
pieces have also been displayed at the Dr. Marion Brooks Art Show in Fort Worth.
One of Kermit’s portrait paintings won Best of Show and 1st Place two
consecutive years at the AT&T annual employee Arts & Crafts Show in Mesquite,
TX. Many of his art pieces have been sold throughout the years.
Kermit put his passion for painting and drawing on the back burner spending
time working, being a husband and family man, raising his two sons, and
dedicating most of his spare time singing (another God given talent). However,
upon his retirement, the artist was inspired to relaunch his painting career and
display some of his many works done in the past, as well as current/new works.
