About the Artist
Born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 1945, Bob graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Masters in Environmental Planning.
After four difficult and unsatisfying years in that field, Bob was encouraged by family and friends to put his artistic talents to greater use.
Soon he was selling "American Wildflowers in Metal Sculpture" to galleries and shops in more than 40 states. That was just the beginning.
It has been more than 25 years, and metal art remains Bob's passion, joy, and source of income. Bob also enjoys other activities that include family hikes, backpacking, snorkeling, softball, a little gardening, fun with the family dogs, and any kind of travel.
