I am a visual artist. I live near Walnut Grove in southwest Minnesota.
I work primarily in Printmaking, Drawing, Photography and Weaving.
My majority of my prints are intaglios created on zinc plates and hand printed in small editions of 10 to 20 on archival paper. I occasionally do pieces using relief and photogravure printing techniques. I also create limited edition hand printed art books.
My pencil drawings are based on images I photograph and extend using my imagination.
My photography centers on faces and emotion. Using computer imaging software, I create and develop images bring more focus to the images.
I am a graduate of Walnut Grove High School, three years in the army, and degrees from Northwestern Bible College, Roseville.MN, SMSU, Marshall, MN and Mankato State University, Mankato, MN.
I raised three children. On our farm I raised cows, horses, chickens, dogs and sheep. I teach visual art at WWG High School in Westbrook, MN.
I have a strong tie to the land, the people, my family, and religion.
