MY name is MB and I'm a painter based in Venice, California
I grew up in Bennington, Vermont, and was first exposed to the art world when I worked as a high-school student at Bennington College. I moved to Europe as a teen, lived and studied there for a decade, then came to the West Coast to expand my horizons in painting and living. As a challenge to myself a few years ago, it became my obsession to paint waves with a whole new perspective, no kitchy-ness allowed !
As a student of the Duesseldorf Art
Academy, studying painting under Dutch artist Jan Dibbets, the
foundations of old-world European art-making and German Expressionism
were the first building blocks of my art exploration. Obsessing over
the vibrancy and juxtapositions of paint, I have cultivated color and
light skills to create planet-inspired, expanded vistas for my
Being a 22-year participant in the
Los Angeles and Venice, CA art scene, I have developed a unique and
deep visual relationship with my coastal community. The nature and
light of my neighborhood,and the land I live on and water I swim in,
affect my artistic expression with dream-like atmospheres.
Living six blocks from the Pacific ocean, with the very special light that is so specific to SoCal, it's easy to be inspired daily. The idea of combining my European-taught graphic skills in painting, my daily CA spiritual practice, and my deep love of nature from a childhood in Vermont led me to the attempt to make transcendent waves and landscapes that reflect our planet's energies.
I use a personally-developed, specialized oil + medium technique on synthetic, custom-built canvas or paper. It's an intricate balance of control and letting go, of seeing where the paint wants to go and then pulling back the reins and wrangling the colors and tones into my own express language,
My work appears in many TV shows and films: The Orville, Insecure, Modern Family, The Mindy Project, Two Broke Girls, Barry, Legion, Once Upon A Time In Venice and more. I'm included in the collections of Mark Burnett + Roma Downey, Deutsche Bank, Tyssen Corp., Siemens, and the Matisse Family.
