I paint the Art of the Far West — Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, with an emphasis on maritime work.
The A.S.M.A. after my name denotes my Signature Member status of the American Society of Marine Artists. I am also a member of the Western Art Association and an associate member of Oil Painters of America.
My Norwegian grandfather, Hans (my middle name), settled Fox Island, WA and with my grandmother Jesse raised 8 children, numerous rabbits, and hybridized roses. Every day he spent time on the banks of the Puget Sound surrounding his island home.
