ARTIST STATEMENT

Growing concern for the survival of natural areas and the need I perceive in people to understand their relationship to the environment have encouraged me to work with nature related themes.  My images are focused on revealing and presenting how nature has functioned.  I extract the concepts which I visually explore, from my observations of natural sites, science publications, and maps.  By creating these works I hope to direct the viewer’s attention to the irreplaceable value, sublime beauty, and mystery found within our natural environment.

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and after moving multiple times my parents chose Minnesota where I lived until relocating to Austin, Texas.  I now reside in Frankfort, Kentucky.  My college years were concentrated in Duluth attending St. Scholastica, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wisconsin, Superior.  This was followed by a Drafting Certificate from St. Paul Vocational School leading to a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering during employment with Minnesota, Mining & Manufacturing.  My work at 3M was focused on Product Development.  I hold one patent for a wire holding devise.  The need for a greater involvement with art resulted in a membership at Flatbed Press, a print publishing studio in Austin, Texas.  Participation in the Serie Project at Coronado Studio and work at Slugfest Printmaking Workshop evolved into setting up my own studio.  Focus on the intaglio process and stratograph, a monoprint technique have resulted in several bodies of work.  "Personal Poems” is a series of small biographical etchings dealing with issues of adulthood.  "Ideal Mechanical Advantage” presents the transition from the factual world of engineering to sensory perception.  "Global Fables” is a collection of pieces that study of the tradition of a short story with a moral from diverse cultures.  I am now focused on work which involves the perilous future of the natural world.  The common factor in each of these series is the narrative thread which each piece presents.
