Born and raised in the Baltimore area. I graduated from Loyola High School and tried many careers. I eventually graduated from MICA with a BFA in Art Education with a Minor in Fine Arts. In the years that followed, I got my Masters Equivalency from MICA and Trinity College. and attended the Chicago Institute of Art doing 60 Hours of summer studio Post Grad studies in Contemporary Art.
I taught art in Baltimore and Anne Arundel Counties. My last position was Art Dept. Chair at Meade Senior High School. A position I held for 20 years
Most of my work is oil paint on canvas but, when necessary, I will use acrylic paint, colored chalks, colored markers or pencils on a variety of surfaces.
Just look at my art. Ideas come from everywhere. The key is to pay attention.
