I'm a self-taught visual artist and graphic designer with some formal instruction in drawing and printing from the University of Minnesota and early to modern art history studies from Minneapolis Community and Technical College.
Minneapolis, Minnesota is my hometown, currently I live and work in Des Moines, Iowa.
The pursuit of art, especially painting, is a great source of enjoyment for me. Seeing others engaged with something I spent many hours laboring to produce gives rise to a visceral sense of excitement, the same sense I feel as a work of art takes on a life of it's own when pen is put to paper, paint to canvas or aerosol to a particular surface.
A creative idea begins as a seemingly fragile seed yet may develop into a great work of art through rigorous artistic processes, intended, with the care of the artist.
