Scaling down in size and playing lab rat to various oil glazes over silverleaf on heavy rag paper.
Art has played an instrumental role in my life,starting with my upbringing in the state of Minnesota.After graduating from Unversity of WI/Madision in painting in 1988, I have taken my experience to the various cities I've resided (Chicago,Miami Beach,Atlanta) and branched out into scenic production work while honing my craft as a painter. My preference for mixed media on wood has presently worked best for me and I relate to outsider art and the cutting edge naivete' of Juxapose magazine.Movements of the early twentieth century like expressionism also inspire me. Painting has always been the best way of articulation when words become too confining and literal.
