The artistry of Isom's work is his ability to rouse the potentialities in our mind's eye. Looking upon these images, there is at first a moment of curiosity. Later, a more luminous facade begins to appear. Subtle and mysterious, Isom's work gives way to a much more gentle contemplation of shape & color. Isom holds a B.S. in Art Education from Illinois State University and a M.S. in Art from Illinois State University.

The artist resides in Belleville, Illinois.
