In the fall of 1973 I began painting while attending Hussian school of art in Philadelphia. During my second year at Hussian I started going to the Barnes Foundation in Merion Pennsylvania. The next two years were spent attending art appreciation classes at Barnes as well as attending classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of fine arts. At Barnes my instructors were Violet deMazia and Harry Sefarbi. I could arrive early to my classes there and wander freely among  all the collection. Learning about the different traditions in painting was key to my development.
In 1976 I moved to ocean city new jersey for summer work as a pastel portrait artist on the boardwalk. I painted my own images in my spare time. I began selling my watercolors and oils at outdoor shows. At the present time  I still work in both oil and watercolor. My images begin with line drawings . From there; color is added as the space and structure become more in focus. The painting itself tells me when it is done.
