I sold my first painting, a watercolor, in 1978. Today my art typically combines impressionistic expression with a lot of photorealism. I believe it is exciting when colorful, impressionistic artwork has some areas of near perfect photographic accuracy.

I have been fascinated by impressionistic painting from the first time I saw an excitingly realistic yet 'loose' painting of a rainy Paris evening at the turn of the century on the wall of my eye doctor's office in downtown Chicago. I was 11 years old. I wondered, how could a painting seem almost photographically real from a distance, but up close the details are just paint smears?

I was born in Chicago, Illinois and currently reside with my wife and our golden retriever in Minneapolis, MN.
