Makin' art and makin' moves.
From my humble beginnings in rural South Dakota, I’ve always been drawn to the art of storytelling. In my latest explorations, I combine history and surrealism, depicting historic scenes using my long-limbed and whimsical characters, which I collage onto the canvas. A contemporary look at the past, my mixed media paintings serve as a reminder of times and stories long forgotten.
I attended Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD and graduated with a degree in fine art. After working multiple jobs and saving every penny, I chased my future wife across the pond to Germany and lived there for almost two years giving bike tours, teaching English and traveling. While there I worked on honing in on my current collaging technique and developed the elongated whimsical style you see in most of my art.
I currently call Boulder, CO home, but mostly reside on the road attending art festivals with my wife, Ashley, and son, Ivan.
