about me

I began my formal studies as a Provost Scholar at Virginia Commonwealth University. I then transferred to Loughborough University in England where I received a First Degree in Fine Art Printmaking with highest honors. I have received numerous awards including the Yeo Tree Award at the Derby City Open in 1999.
I have held many positions in the arts including master printer for several British artists, guest artist and lecturer at several art centers and colleges, and a charter member and of art6 Gallery. I now work from my Richmond studio, teach, and am faculty at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. I have current representation with the Eric Schindler Gallery in Richmond, VA; The Blue Gallery in Kansas City, MO; and The Moberg Gallery in Des Moines, Iowa.
