When it comes to my photography, it is hard to stay away from a few things.... black and white, large format film & wet plate collodion, and still life photography.Read More
This July 15th & 16th I return to the Midsummer Festival of the Arts at John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Stop by booth 78 on Wisconsin Avenue to see my new color landscape photography!
Last week I put my woodworking Etsy shop on vacation mode while I was backpacking, mountain biking, and photographing up in Duluth and the north shore of Minnesota. Now that I'm back I realize how far behind I am in getting my photography ready for this summer's art festivals I will be attending. That said, I will be keeping my InterrobangArt Etsy shop on vacation mode for July, and probably part of August.
I'm grateful for all of the orders for step stools and tool totes I have had lately, and really honored to have received such wonderful feedback & reviews on my products! I will reopen my Etsy shop once I'm caught up on printing and framing photos for my art fairs.
Which art fairs, you ask? I will be at Kohler's Midsummer Festival of the Arts in Sheboygan at the wonderful Kohler Arts Center July 15 & 16, 2017: https://www.jmkac.org/participate/midsummer-festival and at Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts August 19 & 20, 2017: http://www.oconomowocarts.org
Perhaps you caught me during mid redesign of Interrobang! I was getting bored with the old look, and decided to start anew with a fresher look with more of a focus on my photography. Anyone who has followed my work and this website for the past two decades will know that I'm often redesigning it.
Right now I'm in the process of trying out a couple new designs to see which works best for my new ideas for the site. If you are checking my site for something specific and don't see it, feel free to contact me, or just check back in a few days.
During the open studio tours I normally don't try to work on anything since I find it hard to be creative while stopping to talk with studio visitors. But during yesterday's open studio I was able to work on one of my abstract collages since it turned out to be a quiet day.Read More
Don't miss the 7th Annual Get Behind the Arts Studio tour in Racine and Kenosha Wisconsin!Read More
I must be having a burst of creativity because I seem to be making photography, woodworking, and my abstract collages almost simultaneously.
I finally got around to developing a roll of film from my old Agfa medium format camera. The lens is flipped in this one and that is what is producing the distorted edge effects.Read More
Today I went back to using my 8x10 camera for test shots of this still life series I'm starting to work on. I'm trying X-ray film, mainly because it is more affordable than "real" B&W 8x10 film, and because I have a box on hand.Read More
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.
