I am a contemporary landscape painter. I've been highly influenced by driving around Minnesota and Wisconsin. I've always been fascinated with the land and the calmness of driving by it and it's quiet beauty. I have taken so many photographs of the land that the simple subtleties are deeply ingrained in my vision.
I was born in Saint Paul, MN and moved to a close suburb when I was in the 3rd Grade. At that time the surrounding area was mostly farmland. And as soon as I could drive this is the land that I saw.
I have a BFA from the University of Minnesota where I studied Painting and Photography.
My mediums include:
watercolor, acrylic, printmaking, ink and photography.
