About Me

I love to create.

What makes me tick.

Art makes me tick. I am a nationally recognized full-time artist. Previously a graphic design business owner for over 20 years. (If you want to check out my old graphic design site  click here.​)

Why? Because I want to create a better & brighter world through art. I am passionate about creating for you!


As long as I can remember, I have been drawing and making things. I took EVERY type of art class I could. Went to Iowa State University and studied art and graphic design.

​​LOVE mashed potatoes and gravy. Chocolate is a very close second. I have enjoyed sports all my life, right now the sport of choice is golf. Love a good cause. White VW bug driver.
