Fine Arts from the Old World

What have you done with your degree?
Since I graduated, I have been an Apprentice with Odd Nerdrum in Norway and Paris—and I plan to return again soon.  The past year in Springfield I've been working on improving my vision and applications for a painting series.  

Your favorite aspect of the Missouri State Fine Arts program:
There really isn't just one favorite thing about the Art and Design Department but I do believe the fantastic professors helped me prepare the most. I took much enjoyment from the processes of printmaking (when successful) with Marcus Howell, and printmaking also proved useful to my apprenticeship.  The exciting things Jerry Hatch had to offer in knowledge and practical use in his Sculpture classes (as well as drawing) were superb.  And live Figure drawing was the treasure of them all, both Sean Lyman and Duat Vu work hard to make sure you get great setups and productive experiences.
