Announcement    I grew up splitting my time fishing on the Mississippi River and bowhunting for deer in central MN, while spending time indoors drawing dragons, comic characters, and fantasy/sci-fi worlds while listening to a rotation of heavy metal cassette tapes with my brother.

I have an MFA in painting and drawing from the University or Wisconsin-Madison, and an undergraduate degree from Macalester with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Religious Studies.  My work has been shown all over the U.S. and has been used by outdoor apparel and gear companies like Simms and Patagonia.  I'm active in conservation and advocacy efforts involving clean water, public lands, and positive community building; I use my art to not only raise awareness about these issues, but also raise money by donating at least 30% of the revenue made from my art to various organizations fighting for clean water and environmental protection.

The work itself spans my life as an artist and fisherman, exploring the intersection of the intangible and almost spiritual qualities of fly fishing, and the emotional power of primordial nature and a good riff.  The work acts as an expression of something that should evoke a sense of wonder, fright, excitement and pure energy that comes from time spent interacting with fish through line and rod, all while submerged in the places these dragons and beasts roam.  

Cheers and tight lines.
