I grew up and am a lifelong resident of St. Croix Falls WI. and run Lakeside Studio with business partner, Douglas Berg in Eureka Center. We are a full line frame shop where we do framing for others and have a gallery of our own work. We, also, make double oil primed linen painting panels for artists.
I feel that an artist journey is about always learning, very rewarding and certainly not boring. I love nature and started out painting wildlife and animal portraits in studio. Now I am doing more plein air painting (out in the open air). Painting outside is great because the experience is about all the elements that are surrounding you. The weather isn’t always kind and artists have stories about what has happened to their paintings. I had one completed work fly out of my hands in the wind and turn painting side down in the sand. So that is just one part of the whole experience. But I do feel that nature is wonderful teacher and I love hearing the birds, seeing wildlife of all kinds and feel the sunshine. I love the studio painting as well where I can turn on some music and take what I have learned from nature and experiment with it. There is always room for growth, and to push boundaries.
