Art, especially painting, has been a life-long passion for me. I have spent most of my life creating oil paintings and mastering my technique. With my unique ideas, visions, and inspirations, painting has long lent itself as a perfect tool of expression. My paintings have been selected for exhibitions such as the Arrowhead Biennial, and my paintings, prints, and photography have made their way into private collections across the United States. I studied studio art and graphic design at the University of Minnesota Duluth from 2002 to 2006. I presently live and work in Duluth, MN.
