About the Artist

I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator with over 20 years professional experience and currently located in the greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. My professional work history has been focused in the area of graphic design, logo creation, branding, promotional products, publication layout, print production, signage design, and web design.

For as long as I can remember I have been driven towards the creative process. It started as doodles in school notebooks as an elementary student. Doodles turned into drawings and paintings in high school that was further refined at a college level. This ultimately lead to graphic design and illustration as a professional.

I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Studio Arts with a background in Graphic Design and Technical Illustration from Bemidji State University in Minnesota. This formal education is the backbone of my creative process. When not sitting at my computer I enjoy woodworking and the freedom of putting miles on a motorcycle.
