I am a local artist and proud resident of Stillwater, MN. My work is heavily inspired by the beauty of my surroundings. Though I love to try out different styles and mediums, I have found particular joy in exposing paint strokes to abstract the world around me. I enjoy bringing splendor and tranquility into a space, and hope my art can bring peace to those around it. I have been creating art all my life and continue to teach my passion to my son, who is also an avid painter and mess-maker. I also enjoy sharing my passion with my students as a high school art teacher in St. Paul, MN.
