Booth #: Coming Soon

I received my BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, after attending the first session of the Pennsylvania Governor’s School of the Arts. In my early years, I was a muralist for many private and government clients, some of the murals measuring 80 feet wide. The subject matter ranged from the silly to the serious. In the eighties I was the colorist at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, working with artists such as Red Grooms on specially designed fabrics.
In 1984 I began assisting internationally known architects Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown on an assortment of special painting projects, including in the National Gallery of Art in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, the Philadelphia Museum of Art to name just a few.
My most recent exhibits include solo shows at the Redbud Gallery in Houston, at Rowan University in New Jersey, and the George School in Pennsylvania. I was also included in juried shows such as the “Night” show at the Strathmore Art Center in North Bethesda, MD, Works on Paper at the Tyler School of Art and “Art of the State” at the Pennsylvania State Museum.
Recent prizes include Best of Show at Art City Austin in Texas, Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, Brookside Art Annual in Kansas City and the Beth El Art Festival in St Petersburg, Florida. Also Awards of Excellence at the Des Moines Arts Festival, BAM Artsfair in Bellevue, Washington, Lakefront Festival of the Arts in Milwaukee and the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival in Florida. Best in Drawing awards were at the Bethesda Row Art Festival in Maryland, Kimball Arts Festival in Park City, Utah, Scottsdale Art Festival in Arizona and the Sausalito Art Festival in California.
