Come visit the studios of some of these working artists. Most of these studios are open only for this event,
providing a unique opportunity to meet the artists and purchase their work.

Shawano Country "Miles of Art” is a fall celebration of the arts and nature throughout Shawano and Menominee Counties (Shawano Country). 
The event will include self-guided tours of area artists’ studios and galleries, Walls of Wittenberg murals, Shawano Country Barn Quilts, Gresham Community Quilts, live music, and dancing, combined with colorful fall drives.

      Everything I create is made in America. My lumber comes from Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, along with some from Indiana and Iowa. It is sourced from responsible loggers and mills. All my hardware and finishes come from the USA. I use water base dyes, paints, and finishes for most of my work.
      The lumber I use is all figured. What that means is it has curl, stripes, bubbles, eyes, and colors that are not found on 99.7% of the wood used for furniture. I source all my lumber myself. I am proud to know good loggers and mill owners who care about the forests. A large part of my business now is providing this lumber to folks all across America. I select this special figured wood and then ship it to my clients. I can proudly say I have made furniture that is in 48 of 50 states.
      As a furniture maker I look at wood differently than a cabinet shop or large furniture company. I look for the heavier figure, unusual color, and lumber that is from 1 tree. When making a piece, I want the lumber to be from one tree, so the color and figure are all consistent. It is the little things that set my work apart from mass produced furniture places. I consider myself fortunate to do a job that I love. I am very blessed.

My main specialty and love is pencil sketching although I have worked other mediums including oils, pastels, crayons and, charcoal. My subjects range from facial portraits to full body portraits. I also do Animal portraits for all those animal lovers like myself. I especially have a fondness for birds of prey and wolves. I feel you need to capture your subjects by their eyes and expressions. Once you achieve that your picture comes alive. I mainly draw from photographs, that way I feel I can bring out the true personality of my subjects.
