I am originally
from central Wisconsin. I attended U.W. Green Bay and U.W. Milwaukee, where I received a B.F.A. and majored in Printmaking. I have been a printmaker for 38 years.
I was once a studio/gallery owner...and I have been a professional framer for 25
years. My etchings and drawings have been included in over 50 juried shows, and I have illustrated 2 books of poetry.
My mediums of choice are Printmaking and Drawing, specializing in Etchings
and Colored Pencil drawings. I also create Block Prints and Monoprints. All original prints reflect a wide range of subjects, in an ever-evolving,
unique style. Etchings are hand printed by the artist on a Griffin Press in small editions, usually 25, plus artist’s proofs.
I have created Acrylic Paintings that feature bright, alternative hues and
depict wandering roads, and area landscapes. Also in my inventory are a series of decorative palm tree paintings and a series depicting the Prickly Pair cactus.
In 2006, I was chosen to design and paint a fiberglass cow for the Wisconsin version of the world-wide phenomenon/event The Cow Parade in Madison
Wisconsin. In a similar project in 2007, I painted 2 fiberglass lions as part of the Lion King Extravaganza in Appleton Wisconsin. (see photos on my "Exhibitions" page)
Since 1975 I have exhibited and sold my art in various venues....from art fairs
to group shows to national juried competitions. Nowadays, my artwork is displayed in various galleries in
Wisconsin (see Gallery Affils page) and I participate in printmaking exhibitions nationwide. (see Resume page).
My favorite pastime is playing music with friends. I play many instruments, lately my
focus is mandolin..!
