Born in Columbus, Ohio in 1961, I
earned a B.F.A. from The Ohio State University in 1991.
Most of my work's subject matter is derived from my
interest in ancient history as
it relates to current
events. My recent work deals with my perception of life's
I look at my work as a "surreal snapshot" of encountered
events and attitudes in day to day
life and the impact
they can have on one's demeanor.
One blink, one turn in a different direction, or one
moment of hesitation can change a person for the
rest of their life. I try to capture those defining
moments and convey them in my pieces.
