Born in a small town in Southeastern Wisconsin, our community was surrounded by farms on rolling hills in picturesque countryside. Initially my love for animals drew me to the farming lifestyle but I also grew to appreciate what it represented to me- animals and families working together with nature for self-sustainment. That fuels my artwork. Self-taught as an artist, I experimented with various forms of media. As a teenager I tried oil paints on canvas for the first time and have never looked back.
Today, I continue to get the most pleasure from the learning process of creating art. I learn from every painting worked on but I also find a lot of satisfaction from viewers who express appreciation of my work. Hearing what they see and feel from it and what it means to them helps me to see my work in a different light, giving it new meaning and purpose. I hope you enjoy viewing my available works here and if a particular scene or piece speaks to you, I would be honored to have it welcomed into your home where you can enjoy viewing it everyday. There I hope it will bring enrichment to your journey through life. If there is a custom size you would like that's not available on a print here or if I can assist you in some way of obtaining a piece that appeals to you or as a gift for someone else, please let me know. I am always open to inquiries on commissions and licensing as well and would love to hear from you.
Thank you for your interest!
