Andy Stalboerger’s art

Art is life for illustrator Andy Stalboerger of Fargo. The 26-year-old artist works full time at the Moorhead Public Library but puts in plenty of hours working on his true passion of drawing. Stalboerger has his degree in art from Minnesota State University Moorhead and enjoys sharing his talents with others, like taking part in the library’s recent Chalk Fest. "I really enjoy the problem solving aspect of art. Basically, I come up with image solutions for people. It’s a fun challenge." Armed with a laptop, Stalboerger does digital painting on his computer, the only studio space he really needs. "It’s very rewarding to see the faces of my clients light up when I show them my finished work," he said. He will be sure to light up a few more faces when he begins work on his next project, digital art for a new video gaming application in the works. David Samson/The Forum
