I was born in Columbus Ohio. I drew through childhood and began painting as a teen. I went to Art School and earned an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Hoffberger School of Painting.

I taught at various colleges from 2002-2007. I managed the Art School at the San Diego Museum of Art from 2007-2008. 

I founded the San Diego Art 

Loft in 2015, a teaching studio.

My love and commitment to 

drawing and painting and Art History keeps me on a path that is challenging and intriguing.

Thank you for visiting.
