Background

I studied art at the Philadelphia College of Art while growing up in Philadelphia, and then at Yale University, and received an MFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

I grew up in the east but began visiting the southwest in the 70's and sketched and painted avidly while visiting. I moved to Denver in 1979 and have been painting landscapes of the mountain west and southwest since then. I was invited to participate in the Art in Embassies (AIE) program and have paintings at the US Ambassadorial Residence in Suva, Fiji and in Kathmandu, Nepal. I won a Work-In-Progress Grant from MD and an NEA Visual Artist Fellowship.

Statement

My landscapes reflect a love of the Southwest, of hiking and of painting the western landscape. My paintings are contemporary American landscapes.
