I am a painter in St.Cloud Minnesota and In this cold state its the people that make it warm. I have been painting for the past 10 years. I enjoy pushing the boundary of my paintings by painting questionable subject matter or painting on unknown surfaces.  I have no formal training in painting and I am self taught and prefer that it happened this way. 

I started really getting into painting while serving in the United States Navy but didn't take it serious until after my tour of service. After my service I still felt like serving my community by joining the local fire department and ambulance. I have always believed in the community I have lived in and my future goal is to bring the experience of art to others.
