Dog & Pony Show Broadside
For the past 20 years I have lived on a farm in the Driftless area of Southern Wisconsin with my family, amidst chickens, dogs, cats, peafowl, turkeys, and pigs from which I draw inspiration for life and art. After nearly 1 solo exhibit per year, each of them focused on domestic animal husbandry (A One Chick Show, The Lives of Farm Dogs, The Whole Hog, Strange Breed), I am currently investigating livestock and companion-animal evolution and selective breeding. Current media includes printmaking (block or relief printing) and oils. I have been represented by Abel Contemporary (formerly Artisan Gallery) since 2005.
