I grew up in a military family, bouncing around the States and a bit in Europe. I received my BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and my MFA from the University of Pennsylvania, with concentrations in Printmaking.
I taught printmaking at the University of Pennsylvania (1994 – 1999) and was the Director of Visual Arts at Interlochen Center for the Arts (2000 – 2006). Currently, I am an Associate Professor of Printmaking and 2-D Foundations at the Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania - Bloomsburg.
I own Studio Paper+, a printmaking studio in the Pajama Factory, Williamsport, PA. I also maintain the Roost, my drawing, and painting studio, on the family horse farm in Montoursville, PA.
My work often incorporates little ala prima moments, that are sometimes intuitive and sometimes formal. These moments are placed within a larger disjointed composition. This practice smashes up the ever-contrasting confusion of my region, country, and planet.
Place, objects, and theology are themes that weave past and present moments.
