A native of Loveland since childhood, J. D. has found the city’s passion and support for the arts a great encouragement and inspiration.
Descended from great grandparents who immigrated from Norway, and introduced to the art by his father and grandmother, he has felt the inherent urge to create artistically in the spirit of his Scandinavian forebears.
J. D. received formal training in art as an art major at Colorado State University. He has worked in various medias: pencil, pastels, oils, and eventually turned his attention to bronze sculpture.
Not wishing to limit himself to the narrow confines of one area, he has incorporated animal and wild-life forms along with varied human forms in what has become a very diversified portfolio.
Through a hearing impairment, J. D. feels his powers of observation have been keenly intensified. “God has used this shortcoming to enhance the talent which He has given me.”
