I am an abstract painter and musician, upright and electric bass, living in Eau Claire. I have been actively painting since 2000. My interest and inspiration lie in the process of the pictures I create. Often, I paint with a particular living space in mind and choose colors and design elements to fit the space and decor, regardless of whether the space actually exists or is purely imaginary. I enjoy the process of completing a painting as each step is experimental in many ways, and each is important to the final result. It is a process of problem solving, with successes and failures along the way. I find this aspect of the work very exciting and rewarding.Primarily I paint on wood panels. The rigidity of the wood surface allows me to aggressively scrape and sand the work as I build or deconstruct layers of paint or plaster. Texture and vivid color are hallmarks of my paintings, and I am constantly experimenting with combinations of paint, plaster, ash, and other finishes. I enjoy creating larger scale, multi-panel paintings for corporate or commercial settings and homes with large walls and open areas.
