Artists seem to be endowed with perceptual understandings that go beyond merely seeingthings. As an artist I want to offer the viewer more than a recording or a photographic likeness of a visual scene. I wish to expose the mysterious depths that lie beneath.

Botzum paints primarily in oil and watercolor, but also works in pastel, charcoal, and ink. He chooses to not limit himself to any particular medium or subject matter. His work is best described as “atmospheric” or “moody.” He paints images of landscapes, seascapes/harbor scenes, still lifes, figures and portraits. Visit the artist in his or her creative surrounds, view works in progress, see some art perhaps not yet seen by the public. Experience the environment that the artist is in when s/he creates an artwork. Get to know the artist through personal conversations. By appointment only. See contact information above.
