My drawings and prints are inspired by my photographs but the images are broken down into simple shapes. Shapes that are recognizable, not necessarily as any specific place but as a recollection or memory of something familiar.

If you have questions about my work please contact me.

I have had exhibitions at Rosalux Gallery, and the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and at Raymond Avenue Gallery in Saint Paul. My work is in collections in Minnesota and California.
