I am the current 2023-24 ceramic artist-in-residence at BaCA in Pompano Beach, Florida.  I teach ceramics classes for Broward Public Schools adult education program. Recently my sculptures were exhibited in a solo exhibit at Bailey Contemporary Art Center, and in fall, 2023 the sculptures were on exhibit at the Deerfield Beach Historical Society Museum. Both exhibits were funded by the Broward County Cultural Division.

Since 2018 my art practice is primarily ceramic sculpture.  In the past few years I have attend several residencies including: Skowhegan, Watershed Center for Ceramics, Pentaculum at Arrowmont Crafts Center and Penland.

As a painter I primarily worked in the traditional technique of buon fresco.  I painted portable, easel-size frescoes on a variety of support surfaces, such as ceramic tiles, and have created fresco murals in New York, Maine, and California. I taught fresco for ten summers at the Skowhegan Art Residency and lectured and present workshops on fresco throughout the country.  An image of my fresco is featured in Gateways to Art" the leading art appreciation textbook used in colleges and advanced placement art history courses. Published by Thames & Hudson. (fall 2018) 

Throughout my career I have balanced my art practice with working in museums and community art centers.  I presented education program at The Cloisters, Metropolitan Museum; American Museum of Natural History, J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Walters Museum.  After managing the fresco program at Skowhegan I was the Director of the Educational Alliance Art School on the Lower East Side before moving to Florida in 2013 to manage the Boca Raton Museum Art School.
