About Mike

One of my goals in life, one of the items in my bucket list has always been to have my own art gallery.  Now after having painted professionally for over 35 years, that dream has finally come true.   Together with my wife Juli,  we are finally opening our gallery:  Chisholm Valley Wildlife Art.

My vision as I designed and built the gallery over the last couple of years was to have the inside be a showcase of my art, and to have the outside be a showcase of conservation and land management.  Set in the Bluff Country of southeast Minnesota, the inside of our gallery has the look and feel of an old English gun room, and is surrounded by hardwood hills, contoured farmland, a trout stream, and more.

Our website will provide a place for you to view my paintings and read about my life and work, but we will not be selling on the Internet. We do invite you to stop in and browse if you are in the area. If you would like to purchase my work online, please visit Wild Wings at http://www.wildwings.com or Art Barbarians at http://www.artbarbarians.com.
