DescriptionOK, I feel like I should clarify this... yes, this map is really from 1830. Yes, if you do the math, that means that it is 178 years old. That means that it is 144 years older than I am. If you do the math even further, this means that this map of France has lived 5.235 of my lifetimes. I wonder where it has been in those 178 years. I like to think it has changed many hands and seen many places. I can only imagine where it will be the next 178 years. For the next 7 days, it will be here on my desk, sitting next to my drawing table, preparing for its journey to continue... Enjoy!
Keemo Gallery, Grand Rapids Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement
I paint people. The people in my painting are usually based on real people that I may have ran into through the day or based upon people I know. Every person/painting has a story.
My paintings currently reside in private collections in Canada, England, Austria, Brazil, Spain, Australia, South Korea and almost every state in the US (come on Nebraska, North Dakota and Idaho!).
Current exhibitions include: The Take 121 Gallery in Nashville, TN. The B.O.B in Grand Rapids, MI. Two paintings are in the current issue of Black Oak Presents. My work has been used in both print and web publications. I have participated in both group and solo shows.
