Artist statement: 

I’m a Minnesotan through and through. I grew up  in Edina and started working on my art career when I got a giant box  of 72 crayons for Christmas at age eight. I graduated from Winona  State University, but I was also trained in classical painting and drawing  through the Atelier system that was started in Minneapolis by Richard  Lack. I have a studio in the Northrup King Building in north Minneapolis;  the building has become a well-known destination for incredible art events like Art-aWhirl and Art Attack.  

The work I’m sharing in this show started when I decided to step away from traditional  still life and let my imagination dictate the compositions. I wanted to try to create a fresh,  slightly humorous take on still life. Paintings started popping into my head fully formed  while I was in a half-awake state. Dreaming of floating fruit and walking teapots sent me  towards expressing the human condition through anthropomorphic vignettes. By the  use of objects as opposed to figures, I’m taking out gender and cultural cues and hoping  everyone can relate to the stories. I describe my work with the adjectives colorful, warm,  joyful, positive, graphic, clean, modern, whimsical. My overall goal as a painter is that I’d like  my paintings to make people feel good —to bring joy and fun.
