Artist / Convention Artist Guild / Panelist Guest / Photographer
Blair has been doing photography of one type or another since the 4th grade. After trying his hand at various different forms, he decided to stop selling his services as a photographer and instead concentrate on photography as an art form. He has been showing his work in various local convention art shows for the past five years, this year adding other forms of art. Blair does all his own matting and also photographs his wife Mitzi’s sculptures. In 2018 he joined with a group of fellow creatives to form the Convention Artists Guild in Colorado. Blair lives in Colorado with his lovely wife of 30+ years, Mitzi, and their feline overlords Koda and Sparo.
