I am interested in the way art conveys different states of consciousness to the viewer. I consider it the artist's responsibility to portray their highest self. Art is a portal through which the viewer takes an internal journey into consciousness and growth. My wish is that these paintings allow all who see them to transport them to a place of peace and renewal, where dreams and inner visions can heal and enlighten.
<p>I've studied studio art at Concordia College Moorhead, Pacific Lutheran University, University of Minnesota, the Atelier in Minneapolis and Minnesota River School of Fine Arts. I studied Plein Air painting under Minnesota artists Richard Kochenash and Brian Stewart. My personal studies into all aspects of art making are intensive, ongoing and lifelong. The journey never ends.</p>
My work resides in corporate and private collections in North America, Europe and the South Pacific.
