(If you’re looking for a more traditional artist bio, you may be interested that I studied at the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston as well as Massachusetts College of Art. I’ve exhibited in group shows in diverse New England venues including the Worcester Art Museum, the Prudential Center and International Place in Boston. And, I’ve had numerous pieces, including several of the pieces for sale here, juried into national exhibitions.)

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work.
