About the Artist
I’ve enjoyed many different kinds of art throughout my life, including painting, pottery, and drawing. As a child, my mother loved to plan creative activities. We made Easter baskets in the spring, holiday decorations in the winter, and many other activities long forgotten. She gave me a sense of creative joy and a sense of adventure for new ideas and projects.
My parents loved to travel, and everywhere we went dad was pulling out the camera, checking his light meter, and trying to get the perfect camera angle. When I discovered Photoshop around 1999, photography became a major passion for me. From 2005 – 2009 I ran a professional portrait studio, with a specialty in baby photography.
Since 2009, I’ve focused on fantasy compositions and nature photography, which I show at Art and Craft shows in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I have two married daughters and two granddaughters, who appear in many of my images.
