I was inspired early in life to be an environmentalist after reading Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring." I didn't know how to do that until later when reducing, reusing, and recycling became prevalent.
Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, I protested for civil rights, the war in Vietnam, and the rights of gays, lesbian, and bisexual people.
My study of art began early in life and I won a National Scholastic Arts honorable mention while in high school. I had several shows in Washington, D.C. before moving to California where I earned an MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
Using found objects, recycled materials, and debris generated during daily life, I create political portraits and realistic representation of aquatic life.
My work has been exhibited across the United States from Massachusetts to Washington state including Connecticut, Maryland, Georgia, Iowa, Colorado, and California. Publications, include ArtExhibeo.Com, ArtKatalyst, and Glastonbury Life
