Since acquiring my masters degree at VCU I have been working as a independent artist creating one of a kind art works for galleries and art collectors. I have been fortunate in being commissioned to produce many public and private art pieces. Art in education has been important to me. I have been a roster teaching artist with the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts since 1997. I have had the pleasure to facilitate many art residencies involving student populations from K-12. Recently, I have been involved in art residencies with communities especially older adults.
