I am a Minnesota artist and a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, albeit some time ago. Like most artists, I have been creating visual imagery most of my life. Since graduating, however, I’ve painted different subjects in differing styles. During the past several years, my focus has primarily been on representational landscapes and individual people, all done in oils.
Generally I prefer to use reference, either in real life or from photographs that, most often, I have taken myself. I hope viewers take as much pleasure in examining the “gentle manipulation of reality” as I do in creating it.
