I received simultaneously a double Masters Degree in both Drawing and in Painting at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Former University Professor of 20 years, teaching Figure Drawing, Oil Painting on various levels of development and Watercolor courses.
• University of Wisconsin, Madison
• Boston University School of Fine Arts, Boston
• University of New Hampshire, Durham


2011–2014
I created and curated seven three-day Pop-up exhibitions in my large South End painting studio. Each presentation focused on a central theme as I exhibited Greater Boston artists I felt underserved by Boston galleries and museums. These presentations required numerous studio visits and careful planning. Each Pop-up was a well planned, reviewed and handsomely installed exhibition.
