I work as a graphic designer and illustrator in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

For the past 25 + years, I have been busy illustrating, designing, teaching, mentoring and providing creative direction. I have worked with some fantastic talent and have provided creative communication solutions to clients of all shapes and sizes. From sole proprietorships to large corporations. From boardgame companies to high-tech manufacturers. With styles ranging from old school pencil and charcoal to digital, my design and illustration have run the gamut.  And I have enjoyed every minute of it.

I find great inspiration working from Iceland. Or the Canary Islands.

We have family overseas, so I often find myself working from various places. The patio of a seaside bar on the north shore of Tenerife. Or near a cabin window watching Icelandic horses leaning into the bracing winds off the ​Faxaflói Bay. From the sounds of commerce and noisy trams in Berlin-Mitte, to the quiet timbered house-lined ​streets of medieval Schwäbisch Hall, my work doesn't skip a beat. Many of my client's don't  even know when I'm gone. They just assume I have strange sleep schedules.

Family is inspiration.

And a good thing too, since I work from home, and we homeschool. Much of my design inspiration has come from the background noises --or blatant interuptions-- of my children. They have critiqued my work,  inadvertently "added" to client meetings, and egged me on with hilarious commentary on some of my more goofy projects.

I love building toys and furniture from scrap wood.

Once upon a time, my father taught me to build a house. After that, I started building castles ... though on a smaller scale. And furniture. All from reclaimed wood and hardware. A tossed out pallet is great inspiration. So when I need a break from the intangible digital world, I turn to amature carpentry.  More on that here.
