I live and work in Washington DC, my hometown of more than 30 years. After taking a bit of a detour a number of years ago and getting lost in a career in architecture, I have recently returned to my arts practice and am currently focused on creating a new body of work building on the foundation laid earlier. My work has been exhibited in Washington, Philadelphia, and Chicago and is in multiple private collections.
