Artist Vitae

My Artist Vitae (the fancy way of saying Artist Resume) is where you’ll find my gallery representation, exhibitions, and awards that have shaped my career as an artist.  I have a four-year bachelor of science degree in Environmental and Public Health from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.  I enjoy bringing my science background into my work as an artist.
