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. My studio and gallery are located at Artisan Forge Studios, Studio 13, 1106 Mondovi Road, Eau Claire WI 54701.
