Touch the Art / Find your Heart – 

For most of my work life I was a commercial and stock photographer working from a warehouse studio in downtown Minneapolis. Closing the downtown commercial studio opened the door for a serious exploration of painting and mixed media. I put down the camera and picked up an artist’s brush. I explore and reframe seemingly chaotic patterns, colors and textures, presenting them in a way that looks deeper into the unknown relationships that are all around us.
