About Me and My Art

Drawing the people, places and animals around me has been a part of my life since I could hold a pencil. 

The first step of my training was earning a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in painting and ceramics from Bowling Green State University.  From there I went on to study at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago.  

In the US, home base is my studio in Toledo, Ohio.  From there I travel around the world for inspiration.  I translate what I experience and feel during my journey into shape, color and line.
