I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. I attended Bennett HS, The American Academy of Art in Chicago and the University of Buffalo where I received a degree in Art Education. I taught art for 32 years in the Buffalo system, at both the elementary and the high school level.
I have been fortunate to do what I love in my career - teach art and share my knowledge and excitement with my students. Now retired, I get to do what I love on a regular basis, that is to make art everyday.
