BIO
After attending art schools and universities around the country,
I graduated from Wright State University with a double BFA in
painting and printmaking.

From 1958- 1961 I was working in watercolor on the west coast of Florida.
I worked mainly in oils, printmaking and mixed media collage in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio from 1970-1981,
then moved to Louisianna and continued working in collage and mixed media and watercolor until 2005.
In August 2005 Hurrricane Katrina destroyed my studio and all the work therein.
I returned to the Ohio Valley in the winter of 2006 and resumed working in oils , watercolor and collage.

I continue to work and update this website twice yearly with my most recent endeavors.
