Born in St. Vincent, Minnesota, I grew up in Minnesota and North Dakota. I attended the University of Minnesota, earning a Bachelors in the Fine Arts, and continuing on to earn Masters in Art from the University of Southern California, and a Masters of Fine Arts from Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, California.
While teaching art in Los Angeles I became interested in the graffiti which was everywhere in the city. I photographed hundreds of examples over the years and used these as the basis for collages and paintings.
The current series of works are a continuance of the painting/collage mix. However, these more recent peces are developing into more painting and less collage.
I have exhibited my work throughout California and Fargo
These mixed-media collages are the culmination of photographing street art in Los Angeles for 10 years. Each photo is a small portion of a much larger piece. Hundreds of photos were taken and only the best ones were used. Some of these photos have also been painted on top of.
