Artist's Bio

   I was born and raised in West Central Minnesota where lakes 
and woodlands meet the plains.  As a child, I visited many 
museums, both historical and artistic, and, when able, took 
various items apart to see how they worked.  With the ownership 
of a small pickup at the age of 16, I began exploring abandoned 
farmsteads and scrap yards in the area, often returning with 
forgotten treasures, all the while participating in the local 
arts.  With a passion for both history and the arts, I received 
a Bachelors degree in Archaeology and a Minor in Art from 
Minnesota State University Moorhead and went on to receive a 
Masters degree in Historical Archaeology from Illinois State 

   My art is an expression of my overlapping passions 
for art and history, combined with my interests of 
“artifacts”, if you will, the Industrial Revolution, 
and all things mechanical.
