I began in Baltimore, MD Dec. of 45 where I received a BFA @ the Maryland Institute Coll. of Art (70). From the youthful moment I felt graphite transfer to the paper surface, I was hooked…a life of visual pursuit was immanent.

Either as a visualist, or a human, most solutions are as near as that which may be touched, this idea play centrally in ways of: thinking, seeing, and doing. A journey between the mirage of dreams, and the world as it is, the virtual/actual – Nature/humanity, such contrasts are germain to these visual acts. Each have direct relation to one another, particularly to issues of possibility, and the evolving me, all works in progress. If lucky, such expressions will be the connective tissue of mediation between the, at times blurred lines of the virtual/actual,…a visual endowment in a future beyond self.
