I am an artist and writer from Fridley, Minnesota.
My bipolar condition besets me with procrastination and incomplete studies. In my art, I leave white space to create an illustration of my ability to end a visual piece abruptly. I write and draw every day to support my mental health. I am particularly drawn to sacred subjects, but I am also inspired by politics and animals (particularly elephants).
My first publication was a cartoon in 1987. Since then I have exhibited at Outsiders and Others (2005), Writers as Artists (2006), Interact Art Studio (2007-2012), Art Ability (2007-2010, 2012), and Courage Kenny's Art of Possibilities (2017, 2022, 2023). Several of my 'zines' are on display and for sale in the shop of the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
I am member of the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community (WACAC), the NorthEast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) and I exhibit at various venues in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. See list of current and previous shows.
I am thankful to the art venues, local restaurants, cafes, and churches that have hosted my art.
