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


I’ve always been drawn to landscape and architecture. I find that these subjects provide me with plenty of opportunity to explore a variety of concepts, stories and formal elements of fine art that interest me the most as a visual artist.

Latest Work

Over the past several years I’ve been focused on Photography. Recently though I find myself wanting to combine my interest in photography with painting, drawing and other types of mixed-media.

Much of my latest work is created via a “photo collage” process in which separate elements are digitally combined to create enriched compositions. Many of these pieces are based on dreams I’ve had or concepts I envision. You’ll find this work in my Digital Art Prints collection.

I also enjoy creating designs and abstract illustration. These creations explore the world of design using only color, shape and line. I haven’t exhibited this work yet, but will be introducing it online in the future.


My formal education 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 went on to complete my MFA in Motion Graphics (Film) at CalArts (California Institute of the Arts).

Personal Life

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

My inspiration comes from music, books or dreams. I also love looking at work by other artists. A few of my favorites are Henri Rousseau, René Magritte, Mark Rothko and David Hockney.


My work begins with an initial idea that I’ll jot down and explore further with a camera, a sketch pad or drawing tablet. The final work takes shape as a finished two dimensional piece.


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