ArtPrize 2016 - Craft Revival Jewelers

  • Craft Revival Jewelers

I created a piece that captures the Lake Superior shorline, after being inspired by it during my Artist-in-Residence experience at the Porcupine Mountains.  My piece, With Love Things Grow, captures all of my favorite subjects in one; the beautiful clouds, the sunset,  the great lakes, and the magical Michigan shoreline.  I hope you can make it to Craft Revival Jewelers to see my piece in person and experience beautiful handmade creations in their unique venue.

ArtPrize

  • First (Park) Congregational Church

My entry, Painting Michigan, will consist of multiple paintings created on scene at various locations in Michigan.  With these paintings, I want to capture the complexities that make up Michigan's diverse landscape, in the hope to bring a sense of pride and appreciation to our beautiful state.

The focal point of the exhibit will be a 3.5' X 5" foot studio rendering of one of my plein air pieces created at the Saugatuck Dunes. This image provides audiences an initial large-scale visual immersion into the environments, before the other pieces invite them to further analyze what is contained within the worlds. Around this will be the other pieces, each one offering a more brief, but still equally as calculated and intriguing look into the natural wonders of Michigan’s outdoors and it's vast landscape.
