A Short Sketch

I was born a Mid-Century Modern in Motown, right in the southeast corner of the Mitten State. Educated at Wayne State University, I earned a BS in Education and a MA in Studio Art. After spending a decade at a regional non-profit arts organization in arts administration, destiny intervened and in 2009 I left the non-profit sector to concentrate on pursuing an active studio practice. 

Somewhere along the way, I’ve become an award winning multi-media artist producing works in a variety of subject content, ranging from  oil paintings to pencil drawings to the construction of mixed media pieces. Works can be found in all the usual places: local galleries, exhibitions, and in private and corporate collections.

Currently I serve as adjunct faculty in arts and humanities at Wayne County Community College District. From time to time, I am called upon as a speaker, juror and consultant in fine art. I’m represented by River’s Edge Gallery in Wyandotte and I maintain a studio in Dearborn, Michigan.
