I have drawn many animals since I was a child. After I bought my first Norwegian Elkhound, of course, I drew mostly elkhounds, although I do other dogs and animals too. My favorite media now is pen and ink, and I like to render them in color, with art markers or colored pencils. .
I also love photography, especially of my pets and other animals, so have started some children's books with photos .
My latest book is The Shoe Sitter... i dreamed about this book for years before i finally put it together... Shoe Sitter was a derogetory name for a Norwegian Elkhound who wouldnt leave his owner's side to hunt. Its about a little boy who was bullied and how he over came it with his beloved elkhound puppy Vidar. With all of the bullying that has had such horrible effects on children lately, this is a story of empowerment and success.
I currently am retired, and live on the family farm, in Central Wisconsin , with
two wonderful Norwegian Elkhounds and three rescued cats.
