I fell in love with paint and making marks in Life Drawing art classes at the University of Michigan.
Next, the University of Wisconsin graduate program invited contemporary artists to work
MFA in hand, I left for Greece and Crete, first in Amsterdam and Belgium to study
In a few years, I bought land in northern Wisconsin, later settling close to Lake Superior.
Returning to Michigan, the fields and orchards near my home recently inspired a landscape
I grew up near Lake Michigan, lived near Lake Superior, and now study the powerful ocean
