I studied at the Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts and at the University of Massachusetts. I had the opportunity to study with Chuck Close, William Flynn, Mela Lyman, Ralph Helmick and Abby Zonies. Local galleries, businesses and open studio days provide public access to my art work. I write haiku, micropoetry and short poems. Currently they are published on my Twitter feed, and a selection of those are published on my blog. I hope to produce some chapbooks soon.
