Welcome to my world of art!

Being born into a family with generations of German artists, I was almost destined to become an artist.
At age 5, I had my first solo exhibition of paintings in Michigan . . .
 And Art continued thereafter as my
central focus of life. I completed studies at Michigan State University, the University of Wisconsin,
the Art Institute of Chicago and the San Francisco Art Institute.

I live and work between the Northcoast of California and New Mexico. My work can be found in private, corporate, and museum collections throughout America and in Western Europe. Many forms of art have played a part in my world of expression.

My sculpture ranges from figurative realism to minimalist abstract . . . monumental to minimal in size.
Materials used include corten steel, stainless steel, wood, stone and more.
Each new commissioned project dictates the range of expression. The rules come from the heart.
