Brief Biography

I was born in Fort Wayne, and grew up on the Florida Panhandle. I moved back to Fort Wayne in 1993. After a few years I stopped hating snow and noticed that I enjoyed the change of seasons. For this project, I combined my interests in art and history. I find propaganda posters interesting because they offer a bit of insight into the thinking of a regime, or at least parts of a regime. They boil everything down to the essential message. The visual element lends them an impact that often allows them to be read fairly well, even if one does not understand the language.
