I’m a Minnesota based Visual Artist with a lifelong passion for Photography, Painting, Drawing and Mixed Media.

I’ve always been drawn to landscape and architectural subjects. I love the interplay between natural and constructed shapes and forms.

Much of my work includes a narrative structure that provides an underlying story or concept. This includes the use of visual metaphors and iconography that helps steer the narrative forward.

Latest Work

My latest work involves photography, as well as photo collage. Photo collage is a technique in which separate photo elements are combined to create the overall composition. You’ll find some of this work in my Mixed Media Prints collection.

I certainly haven’t abandoned my love for painting and drawing. In fact I find myself sketching and coloring more often with my iPad and iPencil.

Education

My undergraduate degree was in Studio Art with a concentration in Painting and Drawing from the University of Minnesota. After receiving my BFA I took a year off and decided to continue my art pursuits. I then completed my MFA in Motion Graphics at CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) in Los Angeles, CA.

Personal Life

In my spare time I love to travel, hike, go to art exhibitions, listening to music, watching great movies and spending valuable time with my wife, Megan.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration comes from music, books or dreams. A few of my favorite artists include Henri Rousseau, René Magritte, Mark Rothko, David Hockney and many Renaissance painters.

TECHNIQUE

My work begins with an initial idea that I’ll explore further on a sketch pad or drawing tablet. The final work takes shape as a photograph, collage, painting or some sort of two dimensional piece.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

As an artist, my career highlights include my exhibitions, published work and the various commissioned work that I’ve done throughout the years.
