Background

My art work has been included in more that 600 exhibitions since 1966: one man shows, group shows, invitational exhibits and juried, competitive exhibits on regional, national and international levels. I have received 90 art awards since 1969 in competitive exhibits which included Best in Show, purchase awards and honorable mentions. My intaglio prints are represented in numerous collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Des Moines Art Center and Na Bolom in San Cristobal, Chiapas, Mexico.

I taught in the Art Department of Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for 30 years. My wife and I purchased a house in Oaxaca, Mexico in 1997. I spend much of my time in my Mexican studio. Mexico, especially Oaxaca, provides substance for my art work.
