I began taking classes in Rosemaling in 1978. In 1980, I began teaching the beginning classes and continued to explore the different styles and patterns. Living in Decorah I was able to take advantage of Rosemaling classes at Vesterheim Museum. First 11 years I painted in oils but now use acrylics. I have taught Rosemaling classes in IA., MN. and FL. This art is like a therapy and I enjoy doing programs and classes.

Twenty-two years later this master carver has expanded his carving to include beautifully handcrafted furniture in traditional Norwegian designs.
