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 45 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 invetory 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 cow for the Wisconsin version of the world-wide phenomenon CowParade in Madison Wisconsin. In a similar project
in 2007, I painted 2 lions as part of the Lion King Extravaganza in Appleton Wisconsin. (see photos on my "Exhibitions" page !)
My artwork is displayed in galleries, and I frequently participate in group shows and
juried exhibitions nationwide.
I enjoy playing music on guitar...especially Classic Honky Tonk Country music ...and I
also play ukelele and piano. I spend winters in the Hill Country of Texas, and I look forward to moving to Hawaii.
