Biography from American Design Ltd.:
Paul Waldum developed an appreciation for nature as a young boy, hiking and climbing the mountains near Livingston, Montana.  The memories of those expeditions, he recalls, left lasting sketches on his mind. "Nature's elements," he describes, "are driving forces in producing my artwork."

Waldum became a photographer when he was 16.  After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from Montana State University, he toured colleges and universities around the country showing a multi-image slide show, "Creations of a Wilderness," that reflected his travels through the mountains of Montana.  "We can often look at the grandeur of a mountain peak," he exclaims, "but fail to see its elements -- a drop of water, a blade of grass, a grain of sand, dusk, dawn, the seasons, a mountain top. These elements are all building blocks, creating the uniqueness of a landscape."

Since then, Waldum's photography has appeared in Outside Magazine, the Minnesota Science Museum, Yellowstone National Park, and the Northern Plains Indian Museum.

Today, however, Waldum spends most of his time working on serigraphs of landscapes that convey his love of nature.  When creating a serigraph, Waldum starts with sketches he has drawn of a landscape or drawings that he has abstracted from photographs. "I then paint a color sketch with acrylic paint to determine the print's colors, light, atmospheric conditions, time of day, and the mood I want to capture in the print," he says.

Waldum runs 15-30 silkscreen impressions for every print he creates, each time printing a different color.  "My first color is the sky," he explains, "I use two to four colors of ink, blended together to resemble an atmospheric condition in nature. I run each sheet of paper under the screen and print only the area that I have not blocked out with glue.  Before printing the second color, I block out a different area of the screen, reducing the area being printed, and print over parts of the previous color. This is known as 'reduction printing.' "

Currently, Waldum is teaching elementary school art classes in the West, and he has shown his students' work at the Children's Creative Art Centre and Gallery in Torun, Poland.  "Art is unique," he states, "because it gives a student the opportunity for self-expression, self-interpretation, and a sense of achievement."  When he is not teaching, Waldum is either producing his own art or gathering new ideas while traveling or hiking in the mountains.

"Creating a serigraph," he defines, "is capturing a moment on paper.  I gather memories from innumerable experiences and draw my composition, simplifying nature's lines and contours into shapes that are printed with different values and tones of color to create the illusion of space and depth.  It's exciting for me to think that I can capture moments of nature as an art piece."
