my story

            Each place, whether an urban or natural landscape, reveals something unique to an artist's vision. This derives from something that is specific and essential in that space.  Each artist is always engaged in their own process of creating art whether it is the mark in a drawing or the brush stroke on a canvas.
            This vision can become the artist’s style.  I would like to believe that as a professional artist I call upon and mix many styles from my artistic language.  Letting the place dictate its own special look and feel.  I don’t want to get comfortable within my creative style as not to beguile my vision from the essence of the place. 

​​            I live in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
