Interview on the AM Frequency Podcast

Want to know more about what I do? Listen to my interview with Alex Mejias on the AM Frequency Podcast.


Over the years I have had the great joy and privilege to work with many Art Museums, Art Leagues, Schools, Universities, and other Non-Profit Organizations. Whether teaching technique and skill through workshops and seminars or discussing theory, history and research at a lecture or conference; being involved with others in these ways is inspiring and challenging to me as an artist. If you would like to more about any of these program or to contact me about availability please email me
