Grand Rapids, MI

I love to draw. Drawing is always cool--no matter what your age or background. I've pursued drawing as a vocation my whole adult life. I've received art degrees from Aquinas College, La Coste Ecole de Beaux Arts, and the New York Academy of Art. I have taught drawing at GVSU, GRCC, Kendall College of Art and Design, and Aquinas College as well as educational institutions in New York and Michigan. My caricature and portrait business has financially supported my education, travel, and my fine arts studio. I've drawn close to 100,000 people over the last 20 years of drawing. I've participated in many art exhibitions in Michigan and New York City.
