My training at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston at Tufts ('95 Studio Diploma) prepared me for a multi-disciplinary practice. For twenty years, I explored the performing, literary and digital arts when I realized in 2015 that making paintings and drawings was my true North. A return to a full-time studio practice was made possible through a Romano Rizk Grant from the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and a Returning Residency from the Fine Arts Work Center, both in Provincetown. I have a solo show at Four Eleven Gallery opening Friday, August 31st, 7:00 to 9:00 PM through Wednesday September 19th. 

The art colony's fine artists Hans Hofmann, Robert Henry, Paul Resika, Blanche Lazell, Agnes Weinrich and Helen Frankenthaler have influenced me greatly. My mediums are oil on canvas and charcoal/gouache/ink on papers or panels.
