I like the pallets used in painting, sometimes better than the painting. This is a drawing of tulips on a pallet.

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.
