This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in Indiana, USA 1951, raised in upstate New York.  Lived in Brooklyn, New York from 1981 till 2001.  Now living in the lower Catskills with wife Ann Finneran, who also paints, and their daughter.  His work clearly fit in with the figurative paintings prevalent in the late 70s and early 80s, and new work continues in that vein.  The British painter Francis Bacon, the German Expressionist tradition, (ie Max Beckman), figurative art through the ages, New York Harbor, the decadent fashion industry, travel ads, the news media and a particular political mindset all influence the work eclectically. Certain psychological, metaphorical, allegorical, social and even political commentary and ideas may be discerned by the viewer. Seehausen prefers to allow the paintings to speak for themselves, but various such correspondences discovered by the viewer according to their mindset and even conveyed consciously or subconsciously by this artist likely have some validity and would not likely be disputed by the artist, but found of interest.

BFA Buffalo College, 1975.  Showed regularly at Hallwalls Gallery and the annual Western New York Artists exhibitions at the Albright Knox Art Gallery (Museum) during the Buffalo, NY's art scene of the late 1970s & early 80s.  Awarded the grand prize in 1977 in a juried exhibition at the Albright Knox.  Solo exhibition at AC Gallery in 1980 drew an allusion to T.S. Elliot's poem "The Hollow Men" from reviewer Richard Huntington. Included in "Figures, Forms and Expressions" show in Buffalo in 1981 (catalog) with contemporaries Cindy Sherman, Francesco Clemente, David Salle, Robert Longo and Sandro Chia, among others.

In 1981 also received the grand prize award at the Buffalo Evening News Centennial Exhibition, juried by Whitney Museum curator Lisa Phillips.  Moved to Brooklyn, NY in 1981 after receiving a NY State CAPS grant.  Solo exhibition in 1982 at Knowlton Gallery led art reviewer Gerrit Henry to coin the term "Neo Pop Expressionism" in regard to the paintings.

Also in 1982: CAPS Award exhibition (national travelling show) and CAPS recipient exhibition in Nassau County, Long Island.  Included in the "Image Scavengers" exhibition in December 1982 at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia (catalog).  Other artists included Thomas Lawson, Sherrie Levine, Barbara Kruger, Judy Rifka, Walter Robinson, Sherman, Longo, Salle and others. Also included in the Chicago International Art Exhibition at Navy Pier in Chicago.  In 1985 returned to a show at Hallwalls in Buffalo, curated by Roger Denson.  Also included in Nineteen in New York at the Nina Freudenheim Gallery in Buffalo, and again in "Twenty in New York" in 1988 at Freudenheim.  Included in Art at the Polls, at Limner Gallery in NYC in 1992.

Continued showing and selling work with Knowlton when she reopened in a new space, until she closed in the late 1990s.  Recent shows in the Catskills included a retrospective of small works at Columbia Greene Community College in 2007, and also two group exhibitions at the Nutshell Gallery in Lake Huntington, as well as a number of shows at the Catskill Art Society.
