I've been painting in oils for more than thirty years, getting my start in my high school's wonderful art department. I attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, studying painting with Sidney Goodman, Elizabeth Osborne, Arthur DeCosta, among many others, but learning almost as much from my fellow students.
After finishing art school, I stayed in Philadelphia for another fifteen years. While there I completed a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania, taking classes mainly in art history, literature and poetry. Currently I live in the peaceful and pretty Pennsylvania town of Perkasie, with my son and daughter.
