I received the Excellence in Art award and a BFA cum laude from Marywood University, Scranton PA., with continued study at the Art Students League NYC. I am a nominated artist member of the Salmagundi Art Club, NYC where I regularly exhibit my work. I hold a signature membership in the Philadelphia Water Color Society. My painting career spans over 40 years, having participated in juried shows and having received numerous awards. As one of 30 artists chosen from an international field, I juried into the 4h annual Bucks County Community College Plein Air Festival 2019. I am a member of the Peace Valley Plein Air Painters and have taught studio arts at the University of Scranton. Currently, I am on the faculty at the Greater Norristown Art League, Norriton PA, where I teach master classes in all media.
