I am one of more than a dozen artists in residence at Motor House studios, located in Baltimore's Station North Arts & Entertainment District. I began exhibiting my work in 1998, after studying painting with Herb Jackson at Davidson College in North Carolina, and continued studio classes at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore. I’ve created more than 700 paintings and participated in more than 100 exhibitions, and have donated dozens of art works in fund-raising for children’s arts education and literacy, housing for the disabled, public television, cancer treatment research and hospice care for terminal AIDS patients, among other worthwhile causes.
