Residing in Pittsburgh since early 1980′s, I was born and raised in Vermont (Lake Champlain Islands and Stowe). I attended California College of the Arts BFA, Instituto Allende, Boston Architectural Center, Carlow University and Truro Center for the Arts. For over 20 years I practiced commercial and corporate interior design, working in architectural firms in Vermont, Boston and Pittsburgh. Drawing, painting and photography are and have been a constant practice before, during and after art school in the Bay Area and throughout my professional career. My work available either as original art (or as prints in some cases) and as greeting cards can be purchased directly from me via this website and can be seen and purchased at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, University of Pittsburgh Book Center , Wildcard and the Andy Warhol Museum Shop.
