Bert Boerema

Caledonia, MI

My home and studio are located near Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am a self-taught artist, and my painting and sketching activities have been going on for many years. Besides producing artwork, I currently teach several watercolor and sketching classes in Michigan and Arizona, and have held many workshops. In my artwork I am a realist, and my subjects are usually landscapes and seascapes. A painting begins with sketches that I make on location. Most of my painting is then done in the studio, where I can control lighting and other conditions. The majority of my work is done in watercolor, but I also venture into alkyd and oil painting, as well as pen and ink sketching. The choice depends on which medium is best suited for a particular project. My work has been presented in various shows in Michigan, and I have had many one-man shows in Arizona. I have served as Artist in Residence at the Franciscan Life Process Center in Lowell, Michigan, and am a member of Grand Valley Artists, Inc
