I grew up in a family that moved frequently. There were steady parades of new schools, towns, and people. I learned to be content with our mobile lifestyle. Our urgent flights into the starry night seemed noble and mysterious.

Todd has always been a sensory person.

His earliest memories are of sights and smells connected directly with emotion. He began drawing as far back as he can remember. His first pictures were of boxy-looking cars, then of animals, his father’s semi, and later in life, colored pencil figures.

Experimenting with different careers, including working for a short time as a registered nurse, Todd eventually returned to his true calling, completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at The College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Since completing his degree, Todd has been pursuing and gotten closer to his dream career as an artist and painter. Today, Todd’s work can be found in public institutions and private collections across the United States.
