Artistically driven, after high school I took a job in the military as an illustrator, illustrating training handbooks of maps, uniforms, ranks and insignias for US Army troops in the field. I used my GI Bill and started my education at Wright State University then transferred to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where I also did a work/study program at the Minneapolis Art Institute. I finished my fine arts degree with a concentration in drawing and painting from the University of Minnesota. I studied and learned from faculty members, Herman Somberg (from the “Cedar Bar - Franz Kline” days) as well as Victor Caglioti, Tom Rose, Tom Lane, Jody Williams, George Creamer and Andrew Leicester, to name a few. Simultaneously, I pursued Corporate America in the graphic arts realm. That experience enhanced a professional discipline and commitment to my fine art.

I just recently relocated to Dayton 2 years ago after 25 years in San Diego. Suffice to say, Dayton has a great art scene and I’m proud to be a part of it.

The duality of the circle, the perfect shape, boasts a soft and gentle yet strong and dynamic role In my art. It becomes a character amongst rich earthly hues, nurturing stitches or twisted threads which anchor it to the story while inviting you to use your imagination and play along.
