Grand Rapids, MI, United States

This year's ArtPrize piece is a pen and ink with watercolor drawing of one of the entry "gates" to the city of Ehkhuizen, The Netherlands. This entry is called "De Koepoort." It was build in 1649. I was born in Andijk which is a small town just a few miles north of Enkhuizen. We were able to visit the city in 2016. Before retireing I was the Sr. Director of Content Design and Operations with Harper Collins Christian Publishing at Zondervan. I am a graduate of San Jose State University where I majored in fine arts, and graphics. I have worked in various design roles. Most of my art is inspired by places I have visited. I've worked in a variety of media—pen and ink, oil pastels, and colored pencils.
