About me

For both the audience and artist, art is a reflection of where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to go. I believe art is also love – the love of somewhere, someone, or something. 


As I love Minnesota, I primarily paint landscapes from here. From the North Shore, the Boundary Waters, and the St. Croix River Valley, there are endless sites of beauty to celebrate through art. 

After many years experimenting with various painting styles, I developed a style I call Textural Impressionism. Inspired by post-impressionism painters Van Gogh and Monet, this contemporary style incorporates impasto paint applied by both a pallet knife and paintbrush.  Layering thick and short strokes of oil paint creates a spectrum of emotion.  I hope to give my viewers a deeper appreciation of Minnesota’s great outdoors.

I sell my artwork at Sivertson Gallery in Grand Marais, the Stillwater Art Guild, and The Art Preserve in White Bear Lake.  I am also happy to accept commissions if you have something you would like me to make for you.
