Kansas City, MO – If you have ever taken a child to Children's Mercy Hospital, you can't miss the colorful murals in waiting and exam rooms. The artist who creates the vivid and whimsical animal characters, landscapes and seascapes in vibrant colors is Donald Ross.
Ross also goes by Scribe, a name from his roots as a graffiti artist. You may have also seen his work in Westport, the Crossroads, or even as part of the design of some new city buses. His paintings have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
