I took a leap of faith and signed a lease on a new studio in the Bendix Building in downtown Los Angeles. The studio is on the 9th floor and has great views of the city skyline, Santa Monica mountains in one direction and San Gabriel mountains in another. I am excited to get things going.

I'm happy to be showing new works alongside fellow Minnesota native, Stacy Wendt.  We're both serving as community artists in residence at ESXLA, a unique living arrangement that meshes daily life and art alongside artists coming and going from all corners of the earth.  The creative hive interrupts tunnel vision and shifts habits, and makes space for new ways of seeing and making.  Our recent paintings were made in this spirit.
