Bloomington, IN

Come with me on a journey through abstract expressionism, figurative art,  as well as
surrealism and cubism, in oil on canvas, watercolor and limited edition prints, with a strong
focus toward light and depth with a touch of mystery.

The inspiration derived from continuous travels and an insatiable curiosity, focusing on
landscapes, shadows, horizons and mood. A never-ending quest for knowledge of history,
architecture and nature is expressed in layers of paint and emotion, running the gambit of
joy, peace and drama. My influences have been the glow of Turner, the drama of Kiefer,
the "reaching beyond" of Braque and the boldness of Rothko.

I have been painting under the pseudonym, NORTHWOOD, since 1990. NORTHWOOD is a
derivation of my family name, Nordholt. As an owner of an interior design firm, Interiors, Inc.,
for twenty three years, specializing in both commercial and residential projects, I feel the
art should speak first, letting the surrounding compliment the art, with rhythm and flow.

I have studied informally with Megan Ueberroth and Michael Teague. The continuing
exploration of studies as well as instinct and passion are the significant components in the
evolution of the canvasses. I have a full time gallery representation at CCA GALLERY,
Zionsville IN, Hoosier Artists Gallery, Nashville, IN and have been affiliated with  Broad Ripple
Art and Design in Indianapolis as well as Gallery North, Bloomington and Nashville, IN.
