Hometown: Bismarck, ND (longtime Fargo resident, but
originally from Pisek, ND)
Art Styles Produced: Photography
Who or What is your biggest influence and why? Beauty itself. There
is always something beautiful to behold...you just have to be open to
seeing it, or looking for it.
Describe your style: I love travel...color...structure and
pattern...architecture...churches...gardens...you name it! I love
unusual angles, and finding a different perspective for ordinary
What role does the artist have in society, as well as the Fargo's culture?
The arts enable us to connect with people from different times and places. The arts help us to recognize beauty in a world that, at times, focuses on ugliness and negativity.
