My ink drawings capture the contours and contrast of our world using various colored inks. I try to capture the feeling of spaciousness and serenity while illustrating the simplicity of our world that many of us take for granted.
Growing up on a farm near Brillion, Wisconsin provided me the opportunity to view and study my surroundings in a different light. Through the years my technique of applying ink with pen and brush has evolved.
My ink work ranges from the detailed line drawings to the stark winter landscapes where the skies are formed using a combination of inks, creating multiple hues that all of us observe at different times. All the scenes on view are, in one way or another, very familiar to people of Wisconsin and the Midwest.
