About the Artist
Growing up on a farm in central Iowa, Sean enjoyed drawing as a hobby as well as watching the Iowa Hawkeyes play football.
After living in different areas of the country, Sean returned to central Iowa and began to take his artwork more seriously. His passion for the Hawkeyes never faded. Frustrated by the fact he couldn’t find art prints of his beloved team, he decided to take matters into his own hands…literally.
With influences such as J.D. Hillberry and Georgia O’Keefe, Sean began to use charcoal to portray images of some of his favorite Hawkeye stars.
After receiving approvals from such notables as Hayden Fry, Kirk Ferentz, Chuck Long, and others, Sean became a licensed artist with the University of Iowa and his work has since appeared in art shows, galleries, and charity events around Iowa.
