About the Artist:

At least a fifth generation Wisconsinite, I was born and raised in Madison and grew up loving this area - its landmarks, landscapes and its plants. My parents were both UW-Madison grads and I was practically raised on campus with fond memories of meals at the Memorial Union, Homecoming walks on Langdon Street and watching construction of many of the campus buildings.

Generations of my family have loved this area - its landmarks, landscapes and its plants. I combine this love of place and plants in what I create from shirts or cards featuring Madison landmarks to close up photos of favorite flowers.
