Artist, Painter, Teacher
Born and raised in St. Paul, I now call Wyoming, MN my home. I draw and paint from the various people and places I know well. I have over 500 finished works in my converted barn/studio. Please feel free to call and see hundreds of works not on this site! Thanks for looking, Todd 651-308-4721
I often paint people and landscapes and classic cars. Painting and/or making art has always been a basic need since childhood. I want to record the emotions of people and places that I know well. Most, if not all, of my work is based off that desire. I have a strong relationship with these subjects, and each painting has its own journey that I must be aware of. Knowing when to stop working on a piece is by far the hardest mental wrestling match around. Listening to my gut feelings and trusting my instincts have taken decades to learn and appreciate. I treat my art as I do an important relationship--I don't cheat on it, I'm honest to it, and I love it passionately.
