Bio: I attended Detroit's Cass Tech High School immersion in art and design. Senior year I took life drawing classes at the Society of Arts and Crafts (now known as the College for Creative Studies). At Wayne State University I studied Liberal Arts and split between academics and two and three-dimensional art. Working in drawing and crafts I explored visual perception and technique, manufacturing processes, design history and product presentation. I spent one summer at the Penland Crafts School in North Carolina studying metalcrafts, ironwork and glassblowing. At Southern Illinois University-Carbondale I continued studio study, earning an MFA with concentration in Drawing. Returning to Detroit I joined artist organizations and art galleries, producing, designing and installing exhibits. I worked as an illustrator and designer and taught art classes from primary through college levels. Art show skills led to a career in exhibit display and graphics. I draw and work on paper constructions at both my home and Scarab Club studios and do graphic and book design at my home office. Some recent publications include the design for the Scarab Club member annuals, various artist books, several children books and novels. For 2020 I created my own artist book on my paper constructions.
