I was born in Morgantown West Virginia then resided in Augsburg Germany and New York and settled in Johnstown located in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

After I studied Commercial Art I joined several Art Organizations I was a very active member and have shown my Artwork extensively for many years winning numerous Awards. I went on to study realism and impressionism from some of the area’s leading Artists.

I have taught various Art classes including, Pastel, Charcoal Drawing, Pencil Drawing, Oil and Watercolor to both young and old. I have created Custom Commissioned pieces since I can remember and some of my clients have been from many countries all around the World. I create with many different mediums, and I constantly explore new ones. I currently offer Workshops, Art Classes for groups and individuals.
