I was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. I earned my B.A in Fine Arts from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, and an Art Education Teaching Certificate from Western Illinois University. My paintings and drawings have been featured in exhibitions across Iowa and Illinois, and my work appears in public and private collections. My wife and I live and work in Kewanee, Illinois.

  1. Its a good thing we have such a good art teacher at Kewanee,you have a good site maybe you should have a page with mythology since alot of people are interested in that stuff.

  2. Your pieces are absolutely enrapturing and paint such beautifully raw portraits of human kind. Truly wonderful work you’re doing here…may you be constantly inspired and blessed through every story you tell.
