I was born in Youngstown, Ohio 1955. I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. My mother and most of her family were artists. I studied art at Wayne State University in Detroit and lived for a time in the Cass Corridor artists’ community which had an important impact on my sensibilities. I moved to New York City in 1981, lived and worked in Chinatown for many years. I now split my time between being in the city and upstate where my studio is. I have been a working artist all my adult life.
For the past five years, I have been writing for the online art magazine Arteidolia.
