Around the Block- An art collection depicting animals in their natural setting.

  • The Purple Turtle Artisan Collective (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I live in an inner circle suburb of Minneapolis. During strolls through my gardens, and walks through the neighborhood, with my camera in hand, I photograph creatures who journey freely as they travel about their daily lives. Using the photos as my inspiration, I paint animals in natural settings rendered in vibrant colors on canvas and wood.

This collection of paintings will be on view first at Pottery Place in Red Wing, Minnesota and then at the Purple Turtle Galley in Stockholm, Wisconsin.

Salond des Refuses On a Stick

The Salon des Refusés has historically been an opportunity to show excellent art that has been rejected by a specific exhibition. Northrup King Building has graciously offered Gallery #332, as a venue for Salon des Refusés on a Stick. Yes, those works rejected by our beloved Minnesota State Fair. This is a lighthearted and fun event showcasing great and rejected art. With over 3000 entrants, and fewer than 400 spaces, the Minnesota State Fair is a highly competitive fine art event. Let's show our love for the Rejected!

The exhibition will span First Thursday at the Northrup King Building, Open Saturdays and the very popular Northrup King Nights.

My painting, "The Paper Boats" will be on display during this fun show. Make sure to stop by!
