I am originally from the upstate New York area. I was lucky to have great art teachers in High School which led to my decision to attend art school for further training. I moved to York, Pa. in 1979 and attended The York Academy of Arts. At the Academy I was able to explore many mediums and techniques that helped me in my further career as a muralist and decorative painter. I majored in Fine Art and love to create art in many different media. In 1985 I moved to Cape May and after a few years, a friend and I opened a painting business that was very popular for nineteen years. I currently reside in the North Cape May area and I am very active in the local art scene.
