I gather ideas by photographing barns and talking to folks who
know about barns or used them. I look for infomation on the
construction and changes in the barn throughout it's life time. From my notes and photographs, I select subjects with strong visual appeal and colorful histories.
I love all things Minnesotan, the people, the places and the attitude. It is my home and through my art I want to share my art with others.
