      We are pleased to offer a variety of prints by Midwest artist Markus Pierson.
Pierson created his iconic brand and painting style, "The Coyote Series" back in 1986 after he heard the Joni  Mitchell song, "Coyote." He loved it,  played it often and memorized  the words. The focus of the song, a guy referred  to as "Coyote," is a  reckless, footloose Casanova type fellow Pierson aspired  to be the  carefree romancer described in those lyrics. Then he did something  he'd  never done before or since: Markus made a drawing of a song. Since then he has created  and sold over 1000 paintings, 200 sculpture & print editions, and  created a body of found object sculptures.

"There's no doubt in my mind  that my success has more to do with  luck than talent, more to do with  stubbornness than vision, more to do  with ignorance than insight, but the fact  remains that I pursued my  dream and attained it against staggering odds. I say  this now to anyone  who will listen: even if I had failed, it would have been  worth it.  Better to face a brutal truth than to grow old wondering what might   have been." Markus Pierson
