After graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minnesota I taught art and English in Guadalajara, Mexico. When I returned to the states I studied one-on-one with artist Don Marco. About one year later after I opened my own studio/gallery space in Superior, Wisconsin and then Duluth, Minnesota selling originals, prints and commission artwork to many of visitors coming to the area. In 2014 I moved to Phoenix, AZ and eventually taught art at a private high school. I now strictly make art as my vocation.

Oil paint is my medium of choice. I love applying each stroke of color to create nuances that make my subject matter pop off the canvas.

When I'm not painting, you can find me biking, taking photographs, spending time with family and friends and enjoying restaurants around the city. And when it gets too hot you’ll find me paddle boarding and biking along the shores of Lake Superior in my hometown of Duluth.
