Another Quote: “Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird: that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”    -  (Charles Mingus)

 My paintings and drawings often portray a subject where the use of light and space are put into question.  I like to think my approach is a simple one – showing little concern with what might happen in my work until it is realized in the process of being brought to completion.

In 1978, I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus Ohio.  After three years I decided to leave and then enrolled at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston MA where I graduated in 1983 with a fine arts degree in painting.  In 1998 I began my teaching career as a Visual Arts Teacher and Special Educator and earned a Masters in Education in 2009 from Cambridge College, in Cambridge, MA.

Today, I continue to paint, and work as a teacher in the Boston and South Coast area schools.
