Aaron Sutton was “that artist kid” growing up in Texas. He won just about every art contest he entered and had multiple scholarships offered in art. While in art school at Texas Tech, he discovered painting and hasn’t been able to shake it. After graduation, he decided to take an adventure to Florida with his beautiful wife Emily to paint the landscapes, families, beaches and quaint communities that offer a wealth of inspiration to draw from. He has now been a full time artist and graphic designer on 30A for nearly a decade. He is the founder of the 30A Art Map and Artistsof30a.com. His successful graphic design business is called Pure White Design.
Aaron also has a unique challenge in his art career. He is both red-green and blue-violet color blind. Because of his color blindness, his ultimate inspiration for painting is Jesus. He draws inspiration particularly from the verse found in 2 Corinthians 12:9 – “My grace is all you need, because my power is made perfect in weakness.”
