    Artist's Biography

    I am an artist and art teacher living and working in Delaware County PA. I have been teaching high school art for the past 20 years. I teach. I make art. I coach. I read. I watch my family grow. I spend time with friends. I like my dog and cat. I try to keep my weight down. I avoid negativity and confrontation. I look forward to the future.

    Artist's Statement

    I have been working as an artist and art educator in Delaware County (Delco) all my life. I cannot recall a time when I wasn't making something. To be a maker is to connect. Making is an activity that connects to ones past, to one's environment, to ones people. By some blessing or twist of fate, I have been afforded the opportunity to spend time making things, and perhaps more importantly, teaching others how to make things.

    My work is a narrative tinged with nostalgia. All my pieces contain a reference to a moment or event; whether it be embarrassing, sad, sweet or triumphant I can guarantee that they are all true. Growing up in Delco you learn that hard work is the answer to just about everything. What I present to my viewer is simply my hard work. It has taken me decades to figure it out. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
