On Etsy since 2017

Go out and paint the stars. -Vincent Van Gogh

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I'm a nature lover and a Wisconsin artist. What I enjoy most about being an artist, is it's a constant learning and studying of life, color and light.

I paint on archival canvases and smooth stones I find myself along Lake Michigan's shoreline. All my pieces are originals and meticulously hand painted. A great amount of time, passion and fine detail goes into each one. I use a variety of quality mediums; Acrylics, Gouache, Gesso and Pastels.

Much of my inspiration and love of nature comes from living in rural Wisconsin, with a bounty of natural wonders with Lake Michigan, as the crowing jewel.

I also spent many lucky childhood Summer vacations on Popham Beach, Maine visiting my mom's family, where she's from. It gave me a great respect and tremendous love of oceans and water.

Last but not least, I've had a life long fascination with astronomy. At 8 years old I saw the rings around Saturn through my Dad's telescope. I was instantly mesmerized and hooked for life!

I glady accept custom orders. Have an idea or photograph you've taken you'd like painted? Most of my works can be created on a stone or any sized canvas. Contact me for a custom quote.

Frequently asked questions
Are the painted stones waterproof?

All my stones are created with high quality acrylic paint and protected with, at least 2 coats or more of polyurethane/varnish. Because they are original works of art, they are still to susceptible to damage. Keep dry and handle with care.

Where do you find your stones?

Most of my stones, I find along the shores of Lake Michigan, Wisconsin. However, I also rock hunt where ever I roam. Wisconsin has a very unique topography and geology, due to the glaciers than advanced and retreated here 10,000 years ago. Some of the stones I find, could be as old as 425 million years. I find fossils frequently.

What is iron-60?

Iron-60 is thought to create giant stars and supernovas. It is an extremely rare iron isotope, not produced on Earth. It has a half life of 2.5 million years! Found in fossilized remains, in a deep-sea core sample from the Pacific Ocean. Scientists believe Iron-60 arrived on Earth 2.5 million years ago when debris rained on Earth from a nearby supernova explosion.
