I was born in 1951, and have been drawing, sketching
and art making since I was five years old.
I was an art major in high school. At Tyler School
of Art, I was a ceramics major and earned my teaching certificate
in Art Education.
After college, I taught in the Philadelphia School
District for eight years. I continued taking courses in ceramics,
printing, paper making, collage, collograph, monoprint and monotype.
Since 2003, I have been taking painting classes and
developing and deepening my knowledge of mixed media collage paintings.
I work exclusively in water based media. My method can be summed
up in one word- experiment.
