I received my B.F.A. (Painting and Illustration) from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, and my M.A. (Drawing and Painting) from the State University College, Oswego, New York. I taught art for five years in the Cortland area and for twenty-five years in the Mexico School District. I also spent two years with the Peace Corps in the Philippines. I have been making art using various media all my life.
