Lake Michigan beckons to me. As the hike through backdunes nears its end, the sun warming my shoulders and the wind cooling my brow, a row of birches comes into view. The light shines brightly on the white paper bark and the shadows fall sharply behind into the green and tan grasses below. Through the next bend, as gulls hover above like kites against the wind, the lake shows itself. The sand, the waves and the water leading to the horizon form a lovely striped abstract. I'll paint that the next time. This original comes professionally framed by me in a beachy whitewashed frame with a black inner liner accenting the black and white of the birches. The outside measurement including the frame is 13x13 inches.
"Express your ability sincerely and that is art."
In my work I emphasize quality, integrity and spontaneity. Since childhood I have found solace in the creation of art. It is my gift and I try not to waste it. My media of choice are oil painting, sculpture and photography. For me, the three disciplines borrow from each other making each one stronger!
Having been a professional picture framer since 1990, the presentation aspect of the art world is always on my mind. It is amazing what a great frame can do. Co-owning Four Corners Framing Company in Holland, Michigan since 1999 has afforded me a front row seat to many types and styles of art. It has been a great and constant inspiration and keeps me on my art toes. You can visit...
