After graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art + Design (MCAD) in the mid-90s, I channeled most of my creative energy into marketing communications for large companies. But I never stopped loving art.

Today, I am passionate about creating art that merges digital photography with fiber art. See my work in person at artbarn52, follow along with my work-in-progress on Instagram, or  contact me to discuss custom artwork.
