Painter from Chicago, Illinois, USA:

Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I struggle with an artist statement because I never understood the need for one. Ideally, I would want the images to speak for themselves, and whether or not you like what they say, I’d hate for my writing to change your mind. Drop me a line and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear from you either way. email : anything at rettker dot com

All available work is in the shop.
