Dr. Bob Pankey is a Professor in the College of Education at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Over the past twenty years, Bob has mainly created art from graphite and ink mediums. His wife, Jill Pankey, inspired him to go beyond his talents and dive into developing art with watercolor on paper and oil paints on canvas. Pankey uses raw, bright, explosive colors that try to evoke emotion and draw attention to the subjects that he paints. Pankey states, “everything becomes a representation image with suggestive settings or backgrounds.” Pankey paints what he loves, animals and landscapes, and attempts to translate emotion and feelings into color as well as communicate his individual interpretation of each subject. As an emerging artist, Pankey is inspired by painters, Andree Hudson, and John Nieto. His paintings are meant to capture a moment in time, with spontaneity, and he tries not to over think and over work the canvas. As an artist, Pankey is continually trying to learn to express himself in an honest and straightforward manner.
