I began developing my artistic abilities in high school, and earned a Bachelor of Art Degree in Art and Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Graphics. I gained recognition through a college internship in which I created computer graphics for a project exhibited at Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry in 1985.
My art is in private collections throughout the US as well as internationally, most recently to buyers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Japan, Scotland, Sweden, Spain, Norway, Malta, Italy, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
My recent accomplishments include:
In 2012, I was commissioned by the Cumberland Pencil Company (Derwent) in the United Kingdom to do a flamingo drawing that is now shown on their colored pencil set packages, sold worldwide!
In 2013, four of my wildlife drawings will be featured on the set of AMC TV’s newest show “Low Winter Sun” to premier in August 2013!
I reside on my family farm in the rolling hills of Eastern Iowa. Surrounded by cornfields and cattle, my love and respect for nature is reflected in my deeply realistic artwork.
