About Me

I was and born and raised in Minnesota; fishing and drawing whenever I had a free minute. I have a combination of formal art training and counter culture aesthetics, with a BA in Studio Arts from Macalester College and an MFA from University of Wisconsin Madison. I’ve exhibited my work for the last 20 years and currently live in MN with my wife, son, and pets. I balances my time between family, my job as a Marketing Director, making art and fly fishing whenever possible. I prefer to be throwing poppers to smallmouth bass with an 8 weight, but I’m not picky…it’s just nice to be out.

My Plan

1. Leverage my position as an artist
2. Get involved
3. Be accountable

Part of item #1 is my commitment to donate at least 30% of the revenue I make from art sales to organizations that fight for environmental causes I believe in. Read more about it here


Originals are available on my Etsy shop.  I also do commissions; time permitting and if the subject matter is compelling – email inquires to: 20acrecarcass@gmail.com.


Thanks to the fine folks that have supported my work through collaboration and sponsorship:
