I was born in Kingston NY in 1961. I started my art career in grade school. Serious study began for me in 1976 when I began drawing under the instruction of Nicholas Buhalis. For the next eight years I studied design,color,drawing,painting and collage with Mr. Buhalis at various places in the Hudson Valley including the Barn at Byrdcliffe in Woodstock New York and the Woodstock School of Art.
I exhibited regularly and in 1999 I won the Kuniyoshi Award. Since 1993 I have concentrated on collage which I create in my Hurley NY studio.
