I just painted the fall colors on the shores of Lake Superior October 4, 2020
My oil paintings are created on site, capturing visually exciting colors, textures and patterns on canvas using large brushes and vivid colors.
Using Photoshop, I layer my paintings on the bottom with photos stacked in several layers on top to create my prints. The art I create through this process is a blend of traditional oil paintings in the impressionist style with digital photographs I took while painting.
I grew up on a farm near Murdock, Minnesota, and from the age of 6, I begin creating paintings. I graduated from U of M Morris with a BA in art, and went on to developed a career in exhibit design, where I learned the power of digital media. I use Software applications to extend the life of my paintings through blended prints.
