I was born in North Dakota. Service in the military brought me to the west coast where I married and am currently teaching at Temescal Canyon High School. I graduated with honors and received my bachelors from San Diego State University and studied painting under Gail Roberts, Sculpture under John Rogers, and Crafts under Joan Austin. National University offered the versatility I needed to complete my masters degree in 2009.
I divide my time between teaching art and two studios; one in California and the other on the family farm my grandfather built in North Dakota. I spend my summer months at the North Dakota studio while those during the school year I spend in the California Studio.
I hope you enjoy the artwork you see here and I do appreciate any comments left.
