Born and raised in Mankato, MN I have always been drawn to art. As a high school student I spent my summers working in a custom framing gallery. This was my firsrt true exposure to a wide variety of art. I received my B.S. degree in Art Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato and have been teaching high school art for the past 20 years.
As an avid outdoor enthusiast, I always have my camera with me. I look to find interesting photos wherever I travel. It is in my photos and scenes from nature that inspire my sculptures. From the geometric forms to the abstractions of the natural environment, I look to bring those into my artwork.
