Born and raised in Duluth, MN, the landscape around Lake Superior gave me a beautiful palette of water, sky and forest to inspire my work. I have lived in a number of places in the US over the years but the scenes from the Great Lakes region continue to be the main focus of my creativity. I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I spent many years working in the graphic arts and faux painting fields before turning to studio art. While I have used many mediums over the years to create, since 2003 I have concentrated on oils.

Currently, I work & show from my studio (The Artist?s Atelier) on the third floor above the Magdalena Gallery of Art in the Carmel, IN Arts & Design District.

I also own a piece of ‘heaven’: a cabin on beautiful Eagle Lake on the Pike Chain in Iron River, WI where my family & friends love to spend time. There is never an end to my artistic inspiration there in the forest…..
