I began professionally hand painting antique prints and maps over 10 years ago for an antiquarian bookseller. The owner had old books full of antique architectural prints, stacks of botanical and natural history prints, and many antique maps in his collection and asked if I would give them a little color. Using watercolors in a carefully selected color palette, I began to hand color each print. And now, after thousands of prints (yes, thousands, and still working!), I have opened my own studio in Taylors Falls, Minnesota.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Augsburg College in Minneapolis.
