Stay Informed

Making art that questions our thinking on various social justice issues. What if there were no borders? Why do people have borders but money doesn't? The U.S., Mexico, and Canada have one economy so why do we have three countries? These are just a few questions I like to ponder and hope to create art that will have other people question the justice of our current system. 

BIO:  Born in rural Wisconsin, I worked the fields with my father and brothers until I could hire out to local farmers and big agricultural interests. After high school, I worked at an iron foundry. Since then I've had many day jobs, but have always made objects with my mind and hands. Let's call it art. The Occupy Movement was an awakening for me. I was involved in making street art political statements. This lead me to joyfully focus my art on issues of social justice.
