Artist Bio:
I came to Alaska for a week long vacation back in 1986. Because I enjoyed the natural beauty and the strong sense of community I found here, I extended my vacation that year for three additional months, until I finally had to return to my then financial home and pay for the trip. However, I was hooked. Then in 1990 when I got the chance to move up here, I jumped at it. I settled in here nicely, now married and we raise our two boys.

I have been involved in art with all my life, enjoying early lessons through both school and private sources (Gillcrease Museum, Phillbrook, Ect.) I am currently influenced by the stylistic elegance and simplicity of the 1920's Art Deco movement, tempered with the Alaskan beauty that surrounds us daily. I am drawn to the clear brilliant colors and serendipitous nature of acrylics and watercolors; as well as the overlap of rough ink sketching to the stylistic cuts of block printing.
