Art by Bob Paxton

Frankfort, KY
Visual Artist


Bob Paxton grew up in a home filled with art, and continued to tour art shops and museums with family throughout his life. Bob began painting late in life; “I was always too busy looking at other people’s art, I never thought about making my own!” Bob now paints on a daily basis and finds it introspective and cathartic. Bob Paxton uses acrylic on canvas, and painting helps him cope with loss and reminds him of fond memories.
