I was born in Boone, IA and moved to West Des Moines in 1970. I graduated from Valley High School and earned a degree in Art and Interior Design at the University of Northern Iowa.
My bacground of commercial interior design at Pigott, Inc Office Pavilion and Storey Kenworthy has taught me the functions of design and procedures to work with clients. The commercial experience has given me the industrial urgan flair to my work, utilizing movement and striking colors. I am currently creating art for residential and commercial interiors focusing on form and function, while meeting the needs of the client and creating a focal point for the space. Current mediums are acrylics and canvas specializing in abstract. I provide sketches of the clients needs after analyzing the space for colors, textures and size. I enjoy fulfilling the clients needs and completing the space with a splash of art. Complete art is viewable on Facebook under featured albums.
