Past Artists 

  “The landscape series came about shortly after my move from Brooklyn back to Minnesota. After the first snowfall of the year I was struck by the shadows cast upon the snow by the trees. The series developed into a means for me to reconnect with the neighborhood where I grew up.    Aesthetically, paintings are also an exploration into flatness vs depth, pattern, and rhythm.”   Pictured: Black Eyed Susans 2, Oil on Canvas, 18 x 30, 2016
