I studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and have displayed my art nationally as a full-time artist for the past 30 years. I consider myself a conceptual artist as I paint on the backside of clear acrylic glass. Foregrounds are painted first with backgrounds painted last. I define each concept with an eye for simplicity and the flavor of rich colors to set the mood. All paintings are created one at a time with the same concept evolving from one painting to the next.
