October Artist: Don Seegers

Don is a disabled Army Combat veteran. Don's art is his passion and his release. You can usually tell his mood by the way the art turns out. Don is hoping to teach a wood therapy class to other veterans who suffer from PTSD. Feel free to contact Don for custom art, whether it be a sketch, logo design, tattoo, or wood piece. His art can be viewed at the link below or by visiting the Markesan Public Library during the month of October.
