I am a mixed media artist who works in acrylic paint, watercolor, paper, graphite, wood, fabrics, plastics, canvas, and found ephemera to explore my sympathies with the ongoing upheavals that we navigate as contemporary beings. My recent work reflects on the ways humans scrape, undo, rebuild and modify in a perpetual reshaping of the psychological, social and physical environment.
I am a North Dakota native who has lived in Minnesota since 1959. I have a B.S. in education from the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks; a B.F.A from the Department of studio art and an M.A. in visual communication and journalism from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. I have worked as a creative director, editor, writer, photographer, video producer, and teacher in various educational institutions, state agencies, news media, and nonprofit organizations.
My paintings have been included in Altered Aesthetics' Bad Neighbor, 2018; The Degenerates Show, Red Garage Studio, 2017; Living on the Visual Edge: David Feinberg and Friends at Metro Gallery MPLS, 2016; re.con de.con, University of Minnesota, Katherine Nash Gallery, 2015; the 2014 Board of Regents Group Show and the 2013 Regis Center for Art 10th Anniversary Celebration. Previous work is included in the collections of the Weisman Art Museum and the Minnesota State Historical Society.
