Painting and printmaking have been part of my life since childhood, and I cannot imagine life without them. Completed work is a connection between myself and other people. The working process is a connection between myself and nature. Textures of grasses, layers of drying leaves, and piles of stone. Colors of sunlight, shadows, and decay. Patterns of branches, tree bark, and pebbles in the sand. They are all part of the natural world that inspires me. Whether creating abstracts or more realistic renderings of nature, I work with a combination of spontaneity and editing. Multiple layers of ink-both transparent and opaque-are applied, edited and applied again. Eventually the piece will echo nature with its rich surface quality, texture and energy.
A graduate of Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, I taught water-based screen printing for 10 years, traveled the art show circuit and now work as a full-time artist. An old brick feed mill in Ozaukee County is the home of my studio. I participated in over 100 juried festivals and exhibited at the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Wustum Art Museum, and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art among others. My work can be seen in numerous private and corporate art collections.
