I am a largely self-taught artist, formally educated in accounting and business computer systems, who has had a long-time interest in art and music, in particular how these two disciplines are somehow interrelated. Most of my work celebrates a sense of peacefulness and the interesting play of light on inanimate objects. Selected for inclusion in many biographical publications, including Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the Midwest, and Who's Who in Finance and Business. Also named an Outstanding Person of the Twentieth Century. In 1970, I received a scholarship from the Minneapolis Tribune.
