I received my undergraduate degree from Syracuse University and my graduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis where I studied a variety of forms of printmaking including etching, lithography, screen printing, wood cut, and book arts.  I teach these mediums in my courses at Ithaca College and often incorporate them into my own art works.  Look in “Photo Gallery” where I have posted images.

I have exhibited for thirty years in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the United States, China, Japan and Slovakia (See vitae for more information). The Sanbao Art Institute in Jingdezhen China, The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, The Bardiana Collection at Bard College at Annandale- on -Hudson New York, and the Juniata College Museum of Art in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania all have my prints in their collections. 

In 2007 I was one of 30 international artists who participated in a printmaking exhibition and symposium in Jingdezhen, China.  You can see photos and a more detailed description of the trip in “China”.
