I am an eclectic artist with a diverse backround. This is in part explained by the fact that my art education took place on three different continents. The multitude of influences can make it challenging for those who would like to define me as an artist but it does make for interesting stories. I studied art and science at Douglass College in New Jersey and obtained my Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from Parsons School of Design. In between New Jersey and New York I took a seven year detour into China and Europe. I learned how to become a Chinese painter at the Beijing Central Art Academy and how to be a ceramic sculptor at the State Academy of Applied Arts in Maastricht, Holland
I have made my home and studio in Orangeburg, South Carolina for about fourteen years.
