After attending art and design schools, I put my skills to work in the New York City fashion industry. That experience led to living on the West Coast of America and then solo-traveling the world crisscrossing six continents (favorite spots: Indonesia & Switzerland) teaching corporate marketing teams about brand and design. With decades of interpreting words and concepts into visuals, speaking engagements for thousands and many hours in airplanes, my dream of owning a farm came into reality. With my feet back to the earth, I deliberately observed and studied the natural world which grounded me mentally to my Minnesota roots. Now, my Atlantic Coast studio is a playground to create art for clients that is influenced by a lifetime of interesting experiences (a few of my favorite things).
