After graduating from high school in rural upstate New York, I earned a BA in Liberal Arts in 1993 at Goddard College in Vermont, with an emphasis on photography and psychology. Later, I earned an MFA in Imaging Arts in 1997 at Rochester Institute of Technology. The MFA program emphasized Post-Modern art theory and the political in personal art. However, all of my work remained a personal expression of myself, usually in the form of video and installation.
After all this education in art and its many mediums (photography, painting, installation, performance, video, digital, drawing), I have returned to one of my very first loves: oil painting.
