This is Brianna Klapperich, and on today’s show I sit down with a painter who has a background in advertising and graphic design. Straying away from the computer this artist focuses on observing nature and stylizing landscapes using watercolors. You may recognize his work if you ever drank from a Chippewa valley spring water bottle with a painted river scene label. Now working less on design and more on fine art this artist talks with us about the benefits and downfalls of commissioned work. And how he balances that with creating his personal pieces.
Alicia Spilde of Karlstad, MN has a distinctive and unique mixed media approach to her work – using acrylic paint and fine markers with collage. She currently has a piece on display at the Thief River Falls, MN public library, as part of the NWMAC 2016 Traveling Art Exhibit.
Alicia discusses her love of art and uniq1ue style in creating her art.
