About The Artist


My happiest days are the ones in which I have the opportunity to create. When I am in the brainstorming process, I find myself thinking of the things I love: the beautiful lands of Minnesota and North Dakota, kind people, my childhood and all of the great objects and images that were part of it (like My Pet Monster, Garbage Pail Kids, Star Wars, and MadBalls). I am fueled by a passion that drives me to focus on the good things of the world in a time when there is much darkness. My hope for all people is to love one another and to celebrate our differences, inspirations, and dreams.
