The More Inviting Antique Booth!

Well it didn't take me long to expand to a full booth at the antique mall! The half booth was just too small and a bit claustrophobic, so I decided to rent the full booth space and lighten things up a bit. My space has great window light and is open and airy feeling. 

I will be adding more antiques as well as my handmade farmhouse furniture and decor, so check it out! It is the coolest antique booth in the room... if I do say so myself!

I'm booth #67, second floor in the far west room at School Days Antique Mall, 9500 Durand Ave. (Hwy 11) in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.... just west of Racine, and in between Chicago and Milwaukee... not far off I94. 

About Milk Paint

About Milk Paint

Milk paint has been around in one form or another for thousands of years. It is suggested that early cave paintings, some dating back as far as 20,000 years ago, were made of a simple combination of milk, lime, and earth pigments. In the early days of America (and even earlier in Europe) painters carried dry pigments with them which could then be combined with farmer's or homeowner's milk and lime.

Refining Dreams

Refining Dreams

As I venture into the world of color I feel it is important to keep my vision of dreams. With my black and white work it often evokes a dream or mysterious quality for viewers. It is always wonderful to hear customers share the stories they get from one of my photographs. Black and white itself separates most of us from reality since most of us see the world around us in color. My work with wet plate collodion, gelatin dry plate, salt prints and cyanotype print take it a step further.

Intro to Large Format Photography Workshop

Intro to Large Format Photography Workshop

Large format camera have long been the standard for serious photographers, and still is—even in this digital age. This workshop will be great for anyone wishing to learn how to use a large format camera such as a 4x5 view camera using traditional black & white film. It will also be a great introduction to large format landscape photography.

Solo Exhibition at Re:Vision Gallery in Kenosha, WI

I will be having a solo exhibition at Re:Vision Gallery at 4625 Sheridan RD in Kenosha, Wisconsin from January 1 - 29, 2017. Opening reception is Saturday January 14th from 6-9pm.

I'm honored to have a solo exhibition at Re:Vision Gallery in Kenosha, Wisconsin for a couple reasons... I grew up in Kenosha and recently moved back to the area after 26 years of living in Milwaukee and then Colorado. I had some of my first exhibits in Kenosha at the Upstairs/Downstairs Gallery and Gallery 124 (I later became the gallery directory of Gallery 124). It is also great to see Kenosha's gallery scene growing with Re:Vision Gallery, Lemon Street Gallery, Artworks, Left of the Lake Gallery, Anderson Arts Center, and probably more that I'm missing! It is great to see how much Kenosha's art scene has grown and I'm happy to give back and be a part of it again.
