|Education||After graduating from high school in rural upstate New York, I earned a BA in Liberal Arts in 1993 at Goddard College in Vermont, with an emphasis on photography and psychology. Later, I earned an MFA in Imaging Arts in 1997 at Rochester Institute of Technology. The MFA program emphasized Post-Modern art theory and the political in personal art. My work remained a personal expression of myself, usually in the form of video and installation.|
After all this education in art and its many mediums (photography, painting, installation, performance, video, digital, drawing), I have returned to one of my very first mediums: oil paints.
|Date of birth||Why make art?||I have found my medium in oil paints. The vibrant color of the paints themselves draw me in, and the versatility of oils, the textures and consistency, the smell, the sensuality of the medium engages me more than any other medium.|
