Like many artists, I've been drawing and painting my whole life. In school, I loved art. I was always drawing and sketching, and in third grade I entered my first art contest and won first place. I continued to take as many art classes as I could at school, and at art centers, and as I neared high school graduation I made the decision to pursue art as a career. I went to college with the ambition to be a fine artist, but I was drawn to graphic design as I loved the combination of type and image (And it was a great way to pursue art as a career and also make a living!). I graduated from North Hennepin Community College with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Fine Arts and an emphasis in Graphic Design. I then transfered to the University of Minnesota Duluth and graduated Cum Laude in the Spring of 1998 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts.
So long story short, I've been a full time artist my whole life, and will continue to draw, paint, and design. It's just a passion of mine and I'm so glad you stopped by my blog, please return as I will continue to post new works as they are completed. I may be new to the 'art blogging' scene, but I'm excited to be a part of the online art community to share my paintings with you.
May God richly bless you.
