Artist Statement

Drawing and Painting the natural world is a calling for me that has been lifelong and sincere. “The essence of my work is to celebrate the beauty of God’s creatures and how they relate to their environment.”

“Where the Spirit does not work with the hand, there is no Art”

Leonardo Da Vinci

Personal Info

With dozens of relatives from Beaver Dam to Fond du Lac, I am honored to exhibit at Ooga Brewery — Thank you.

Growing up the son of a zookeeper at Vilas Zoo, the care and respect of Nature was imprinted on me at an early age; it has remained one of my core beliefs.

I live in Madison where I work in the Orthotics/Prosthetics department of the  University of Wisconsin Hospital.

Kayla Aftahi

September 2020

My name is Kayla Aftahi and I was born and raised in San Diego, California and I now live in Wisconsin traveling between Beaver Dam and Milwaukee. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University and am currently pursuing my masters degree at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. I am a self-taught artist who is trying to learn new techniques and ideas to implement in my style.

I have always been interested in the landscapes around me, which has influenced my art heavily.  In most of my pieces I incorporate glitter which has been an identifying factor of my style. Through my abstract art, you will be able to see colors and ideas that show a beautiful landscape.

I love sharing my art with my friends, family, and community around me and I am so thankful that OOGA has given me the opportunity to spread happiness through art with all of Beaver Dam. Thank you OOGA!

Nick Schultz

August 2020

Nick is a local artist, growing up in the Lowell/Pumpkin Center area and currently resides in Beaver Dam with his wife Ashley and their son Drake. But his passion for art and design has taken him around the world. He took that passion and grew it into a career, graduating UW-Stout with a degree in Product Design. He has designed everything from home decor products, architecture, to Formula 1 equipment. Currently he is the Director of Product Development at Berlon Industries in Hustisford.

But ever since he met Mario Andretti as a kid, Nick has been hooked on all things car. Nick is an accomplished custom car builder and custom painter, having displayed across the midwest with companies such as Meguiar’s and at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas. He also races in the Optima Ultimate Street Car series with Road America as his home track.

A self taught artist, his art and custom paint have garnered awards across the country and clients as far away as Canada and even Russia. His passion for cars has made up the bulk of his subject matter.  But pinup artwork has been a popular request of late. This rise of pinup in pop culture has allowed Nick to create works for models such as Stormy Daniels, Lisa Ann, and Bianca Beauchamp to name a few.

Nick’s work can be found on his website and social media:

Dakota Moreau

July 2020

My name is Dakota Moreau. I was born and raised in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. I graduated high school in 2012 which makes me 26 years old. I currently work full time for the Railroad as a Foreman. I took a leave of absence in 2018 to follow the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Circuit as one of their equipment operators for the summer. Fast forward to the end of 2018, I bought my first drone, and I was instantly hooked. Being able to see everything from a different perspective was amazing. I learned pretty quickly how to fly it and about the capabilities of its camera. I started taking photos of surrounding cities and different landscapes. People started to show interest in my work. On Sundays during the summer months I would volunteer my time to take video of the Beaver Land Must Skis. By the end of August one summer, a few of the skiers tagged me in a post on Facebook asking for a drone pilot to come up to Shawano to video record a world record attempt. On September 8th, 2019 I got to be 1 of the 2 drone pilots to film a world record of 38 barefoot skiers behind a single boat. As of today my footage has over 2 million views on YouTube! Since then, I have done weddings, races, charity rides, and real estate shoots!

I Love BD – February 2020

Luke Tschumperlin

January 2020

Since I was young, I remember drawing characters from films. Film has been a main source of inspiration for my creativity and drawing passion. I started to take my art seriously around 7th grade. Since then, I have expanded my types of art from just pencil to colored pencil, painting, photography, and creating short films. In 2015, I had the incredible opportunity to visit Pixar Animation Studios. It was a life changing experience and after that, my art just skyrocketed and I drew all the time. I began to create realistic portraits of individuals, and worked more on my photography, and films. I enjoy photographing wildlife and animals throughout nature.

When I am not drawing, I can be found involved in theater, student council, improv, playing ukulele, watching films, and planning trips to the Disney parks. Now being a senior in high school, I continue to draw, paint, photograph, and make short films. I have entered my work in multiple art shows and have won numerous awards with my pieces.

With my college future vastly approaching, I plan to study Digital Cinema, Computer Arts, or Entertainment Design. I want to continue to grow as an artist and expand my skill set so that one day I will be a filmmaker for the Disney company so I can create films to inspire generations.

I want to thank Ooga Brewing Company for inviting me to be the artist of the month. I always love to share my art with others to inspire them. You can find more of my creations on my art Instagram and I thank you for taking the time to check out my art!
