Currently working in acrylics on claybord, I have also worked in oils, pastels, etching, photo-silkscreen and photography. Born in Indiana, I have a BA from Purdue University majoring in Art History with a minor in Fine Art Painting and an MA from San Francisco State University in Theatre Arts.

In conjunction with the It's Personal series, (an exploration of ideas that refuse to be stifled any longer and have finally bubbled to the surface of my mind and busted out), I have added a component called "Poetry." As a "closet poet" my poetry has always been stuffed in the poetry drawer of my desk and I have been unwilling to share them with anyone else. I have recently felt the needed to somehow integrate language ideas with my visual ideas. Thus, the beginning of the "Poetry" series.
