From the Easel 05 | Oct

This joyful 11"x30" two-panel painting was named "play" to reflect the call from within I feel when I'm feeling too serious for too long. The world seems brighter, lighter and happier when I answer that call.


Commission Complete 28 | Aug

This weekend after adding the last few brushstrokes, I cleaned and assembled these two 54"x40" 2-panel paintings. They're ready to go and will be crated and heading for their new home tomorrow!


Commission in Progress 21 | Aug

I've had the pleasure of working on 2 larger commissions that are destined to arrive in my home state of Minnesota next month. 


On the Easel 29 | Apr

Here's a quick shot of a 20"x32" three-panel piece I'm working on this weekend. Enjoy!


Study in the Studio 09 | Apr

Here's another little study on my easel here in California. Spring and the beautiful weather this weekend are helping me capture a sense of vibrancy and of emerging... and I'm having a blast painting the motion in fabric!


Study in the Studio 01 | Apr


There's a new batch of work brewing and destined for my October duet show at RLS with Robert Lange. During the past few months I've worked with 4 models, giving them the concept of SOAR as a starting point, to develop regency images. In addition to capturing my favorite subject matter, figures in motion, I'm excited to layer on strength of character, resolve and empowerment in the midst of turmoil. This fierce little 3-panel study is begging me to make her bigger.

More to come!


don’t be afraid, dear 12 | Oct

I typically don't paint animals.  So when the challenge came for the Vendue's group show, Lions and Tigers and Bears, I was a little stumped.  What evolved from a little brainstorming was a timely take off on the Grimm fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood and features the Big Bad Wolf.

TWELVE! 12 | Oct

"Joy Full Throughout" is a 12" high by 12" wide by 12" deep by 12-panel painting that's complete for the TWELVE group show!I played with the opacity of the layers to allow you to look through this perpendicular painting.  It's tough to capture the depth with one shot, so here are a few photos from different angles.  Enjoy!

coming soon! 28 | Sep

Michelle Jader is working on a 12 panel piece for our upcoming exhibit TWELVE. Excited to see the finished piece.

perpendicular paintings 11 | Jun

Walking down the streets of San Francisco can be brilliant and beautiful.  And it can also feel a bit mysterious.  That's the feeling I tried to capture in this series of 5-panel paintings.  I've continued to push how I use acrylic panels and really use the benefits of the semi-transparency by making these paintings viewable from 3 sides.  They are mounted to the wall perpendicularly (in a beautiful frame that took months of collaboration with a master carpenter to develop!) so you can see the people on the street both walking toward you and away from you.  The light shifts as it passes through the painting and continues to change as you walk around it.  The depth I was able to achieve takes the perpendicular paintings in an exciting direction.
