Welcome!

Excuse the mess while I am re-vamping my website. Enjoy the Bob Ross Lorum Ipsum until I craft my own copy for each section below. Thank you.

About Me

Growing up I was passionate about any form of art from drawing to ceramics. High school years fueled my creative fascination and reinforced my dream of becoming a professional graphic designer.

While in college at Minnesota State University Moorhead, I found myself in a wonderland of artful expression. As I soaked up the basic fundamentals of art, and learned the “how to’s” of creative problems solving, my career choice was reinforced. My academic work was realized the day I stepped forward to receive two degrees — a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Graphic Design and a BFA in Ceramics — each with honors.

I was thrilled to serve as an intern within both the non-profit and for-profit sectors, and currently work at Crown College in St. Bonifacius, MN as their Graphic Designer.

My Knowledge

We need a shadow side and a highlight side. This is probably the greatest thing that’s ever happened in my life. Do an almighty painting with us. Isn’t it great to do something you can’t fail at? If there’s two big trees invariably sooner or later there’s gonna be a little tree. We’ll put some happy little leaves here and there. We tell people sometimes: we’re like drug dealers, come into town and get everybody absolutely addicted to painting. It doesn’t take much to get you addicted. We’ll have a super time. We’re trying to teach you a technique here and how to use it. See there how easy that is. Let’s get crazy.

Son of a gun. It’s amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart. It’s important to me that you’re happy. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart. These little son of a guns hide in your brush and you just have to push them out. You can’t have light without dark. You can’t know happiness unless you’ve known sorrow. If you didn’t have baby clouds, you wouldn’t have big clouds. We’ll paint one happy little tree right here. Use what you see, don’t plan it. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind.

How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That’s your challenge for the day. Let your imagination just wonder around when you’re doing these things. Maybe there’s a little something happening right here. Let your heart take you to wherever you want to be. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend. There it is. You want your tree to have some character. Make it special. That’s a crooked tree. We’ll send him to Washington. We’ll do another happy little painting.

This is probably the greatest thing to happen in my life – to be able to share this with you. Only God can make a tree – but you can paint one. We must be quiet, soft and gentle. This is an example of what you can do with just a few things, a little imagination and a happy dream in your heart. Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically – you don’t have to spend any time working or worrying. Mix your color marbly don’t mix it dead. That’s why I paint – because I can create the kind of world I want – and I can make this world as happy as I want it. Trees grow however makes them happy. Let’s make a happy little mountain now. If these lines aren’t straight, your water’s going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet.

You can do anything your heart can imagine. This is your world. I’m going to mix up a little color. We’ll use Van Dyke Brown, Permanent Red, and a little bit of Prussian Blue. We artists are a different breed of people. We’re a happy bunch. In this world, everything can be happy. These trees are so much fun. I get started on them and I have a hard time stopping. Decide where your cloud lives. Maybe he lives right in here. You create the dream – then you bring it into your world. Every highlight needs it’s own personal shadow. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. Now, we’re going to fluff this cloud.

It all happens automatically. You’ve got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen. All you have to do is let your imagination go wild. I’m a water fanatic. I love water. I’m gonna add just a tiny little amount of Prussian Blue. And right there you got an almighty cloud. Anything you want to do you can do here. Maybe he has a little friend that lives right over here. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it’s good. It’s a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky? God gave you this gift of imagination. Use it.
