I've been drawing and painting as long as I can remember, copying comic book panels as a kid, a career as a designer and animator, and the last twelve years as a painter. Hope you enjoy the work.

I'm Back, or Did I really say painting a day?

Actually I have pretty good excuse for my blogging absence, as excuses go. The last couple of weeks I moved, and when you live in your studio it's quite the ordeal. I do recommend that everyone occasionally go through every single thing they own and toss out or give away about a third of it, that's basically what I've done, massive streamlining. I was in my old live/work space for 6 years and that it turns out was plenty of time to accumulate all sorts of stuff thinking "I'll use that someday".

The new space is fantastic, great light, high ceilings, 1800 sq. ft. I'm still settling in, (and purging stuff) but it's going to be a bright happy place to live and work, I also have more room to teach classes in which is an added benefit. Snapped a couple of pics to post, I'm painting again, a little rusty I admit, so I'll post some new work soon.

The paintings on the brick wall are hung on random existing nails, I'm installing a hanging system so I don't pepper that great cream brick with more holes. The Saint Paul Art Crawl is coming up April 24th-26th and I look forward to displaying in the new space.
