I was born and raised in Frederick, Md. and from an early age I wanted to be an artist. I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Md. where I received a bachelor’s degree in fine art. I also studied at the
duCret School of Art in Plainfield, N.J. where I now teach.
Through the years, I’ve worked in various fields of art such as greeting cards, caricatures, children’s books, computer graphics and portraiture. For more than a decade, I worked for the Star-Ledger newspaper in Newark, N.J. as a graphic artist and illustrator, creating over 400 covers for the paper’s weekly “Scanner” TV guide.
I now live in Stroudsburg, Pa. with my wife and daughter where I’m a member of the PoconoArts Council.
I hope I never forget how truly blessed I am to be able to create art. I pray that God keeps blessing me each and every day with a spirit of excellence, and that I will constantly do His will through my art and in my life.
