From 1975 until 1988 he taught as a member of the faculty of the Swain School of Design in New Bedford. He served as chairman of the Painting Department of the Swain School from 1979 until 1988. He began teaching at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with the merger of the Swain School and the University in 1988. He later served as Graduate Director for the University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. He is presently holds the title of Professor Emeritus at UMass Dartmouth.

A third mural was produced together with the students of the Teen-Mural Program of Artworks in New Bedford on the wall of the Carter’s Building in the New Bedford Historic District. He has also curated six major exhibitions for the New Bedford Art Museum.

In January of 2008 he was honored with a one-person exhibition at the New Bedford Art Museum. This exhibition of landscapes of his native Norway entitled Skude 360 Degrees also traveled to the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle Washington in December of 2008
