Artist Statement

Capturing scenes of America and presenting them in black and white so the viewer can visualize them in the theater of their mind. A similar concept to reading a book or watching the movie. Allowing each viewer to develop their own feelings and visions. These American scenes show the declining state of living in rural America along with the familiar scenes of urban America, just as you remember them. Whatever the locale, on the best of days these images will stir up unexpected feelings and thoughts in the viewer.

Our work can be seen on our website and at various art shows across the midwest, see our calendar (on the sidebar, on right) for dates and times.  

Our work is also proudly displayed at Creative Soul Gallery in Green Lake WI.

Awards and Comments


I purchased the Bus Grave yard picture on canvas a couple of weeks ago and wanted to tell you my Husband loved it!.

I think I told you he is a retired School Bus Driver so the picture really stirs up a lot of feelings for him. He showed his former co-workers and they all loved it too,

As for me, its a great picture, looks good in my home and is a conversational piece.
Warm Regards,
