Member of the 2019 and 2020 Art Fair 14C Juried Show

I have had a studio in the Italian Market in Philadelphia for over 30 years. The market fuels my sense of color and energy.

Among many awards, in 2011 I was the recipient of the

New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship for Painting, and in 2000 the Samuel Fleisher Challenge Exhibit in Philadelphia. My work has been exhibited in widely from New York to China.

Many works are in public and private collections.

I have studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Fleisher Art Memorial, and have worked as a graphic designer for many years.
