Eventually, when combined with land owned by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, nearly 30,000 acres of grassland and savannas will be preserved.

In college, I actually started out as a Forestry Major before making the switch to Fine Art. Most of my art course work was completed at Sacramento State College in California, with an emphasis in Illustration. I received a BFA from Indiana University in 1977. I have worked as a graphic artist for over thirty years.
My art interests have always been eclectic. I like experimenting with different media, exploring ways to add texture, and combining different media. That illustrator part of me always comes back to realism though. My favorite mediums have always been acrylic and collage. In recent years however, I have gone to working in colored pencils (prismacolor and also pastel pencils). I like the effects of layering colors.
