As it says in my bio, I started hand-drawing cards for my wife many years ago. (Well, except for that one time I was running late and gave her a Hallmark card with a picture of a monkey on it. That…. did not work out so well, let me tell ya.) Anyway, because today is the actual day and she's the main reason I started doing all this drawing and painting and what-have-you again in the first place, I'd like to wish her a very special Happy Birthday!

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
