Travis Whiteneck is one of three boys, it was common punishment after being “too much” to be sat down at the kitchen table in the three bedroom rancher and given pens, markers, paint, glue, construction paper and other material just so their parents could have an hour of peace. Travis attended Hussian School of Art for an advertising degree after being in the work force for a number of years. There, he met the painting instructor that would whisper to him “Do whatever it takes. Paint every day. You are a painter”. Since 2013 Travis has exhibited in 5 solo exhibitions, 3 group shows and donated to auctions in NYC twice.
