Nature, fantasy books, Native American crafts, and the European Masters were my first teachers. Those childhood influences still have an effect. They have been joined by art influences from India, China, and Japan. When I worked as a security guard at the Museum of Fine Art while I was in college, I received an excellent art history education from their international collection.
After receiving a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, in painting 20 years ago, I have worked as a painter, illustrator, designer, animator, jeweler, potter, and sculptor. I have continued my education with classes at the Museum School and The Art Institute of Art.
Recent exhibitions include "Sci-Fi Worlds" at ArtSpace-Maynard in Maynard, MA, "Artists in the Arboretum" at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA and a two person show "Through These Eyes" at Galetea Fine Arts in Boston, MA with artist Brenda Cirioni.
Currently I am painting with egg tempera on clayboard panels for a one person show "Don't Fence me In." This show will take place in September of 2013 at Galetea Fine Arts, in Boston, MA.
