I graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a BFA and an MFA, with a concentration in Painting and Drawing. After graduation, I stayed to teach part time and later, full time at Erie Community College, North Campus. There I taught a variety of art courses while developing their Art Department.

My studio is located in the Tri-Main Building with the Buffalo Art Studio where I now paint full time.

My work is done in oil paint on rather large canvases, and is based on ideas developed in series form. My current series is "Water." I discuss my feeling about this topic in my Artist's Statement.
