Residing in St.Paul, Minnesota I studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and have displayed my art nationally as a full time artist for the past 30 years. I consider myself a conceptual artist as I paint on the backside of clear acrylic glass. Foregrounds are painted first with backgrounds painted last. I define each concept with an eye for simplicity and the flavor of rich colors to set the mood. All paintings are created one at a time with the same concept evolving from one painting to the next.
Graduate of Illinois State University. I self taught myself how to create my line of whimsical jewelry, metalscapes and clocks. Years of experimentation have gone into my technique. What inspires me to create is my longing to make people smile and tell a story with each unique design. I have been selling my art throughout the U.S. for over 25 years. Each piece is created by hand anodizing niobium and aluminum. The colorful pieces of metals are cut, chased, engraved, layered, carefully drilled and riveted together.
