He holds a B.F.A. from the University of Delaware and a M.F.A. from Miami University of Ohio. His current work utilizes abstract industrial shapes with organic features.

1 p.m., Afternoon Sabbatical: “Celebrating Christmas in Art,” by Merrill Krabill, professor of art and department chair, Sauder Concert Hall
At Christmas we celebrate Jesus’ coming to earth and living among us. How might artists help reveal some of what it means to encounter the divine in our lives? God in the form of a human infant seems to be a very different thing than God as the ruler of all. Krabill will explore these thoughts with images from the works of a wide variety of artists.
