About:

I became interested in crop art after my first exposure at the MN State Fair, after being an admirer from afar, I decided to try my hand at it for the first time in 2004.

 

I entered my first piece in the State Fair and won a 3rd place ribbon, and have been hooked ever since.

I have gone on to enter the fair annually since then and have had created pieces for myself as well as commissioned pieces.

I have worked doing cover designs for VitaMN, Growler, and other magazines, as well as many personal and commercial commissions.

I have also been involved in teaching crop art workshops at The Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, as well as multiple classes working with children as well as adults.

I am interested in exploring Crop Art as a regional art style and attempting to elevate it's status from a State Fair novelty to be recognized as a form of fine art.

All of my pieces are made entirely from seeds found in their natural state,and mostly consist of seeds found in Minnesota  complying with State Fair Rules.
