Artist, Educator, and a child of the Midwest

The insight, sensitivity and wit with which he plies his art also serve to guide and nurture his students. He is a phenomenal teacher.

He claims to have never met an art material he didn't like. With respect for tradition unburdened by reverence; it is all art in the making.

Works

In my teaching and making career I have never met a material I didn’t like. So I teach them all and practice all of them. One can’t do them all at once, however over time one can do much in a lot of them.
