Dave paints northern Minnesota landscapes with a free-flowing style infused with emotion and color, expressing his love for the place he calls home. He studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, the University of New Mexico, and Yale University’s prestigious summer program. Dave painted billboards, eventually creating Gilsvik Signs and Murals in Two Harbors before turning into a full-time artist. “The world of nature has always been my world of choice. My method is to simply observe nature and pay attention, both to the nature in front of me and the nature inside of me.”
