Associate Professor of Fine Arts: Art
B.F.A. Rhode Island School of Design
Areas of Expertise:
I inquire into the contemporary comingling of biological, manufactured, and virtual environments by combining hand-made and computer-derived imagery in my paintings.
Courses I Teach:
- Life Drawing
- Painting Tutorial
- Painting with Oil
I present theory, history, and practice as inextricably connected in my courses. I give my students instruction in manual and conceptual skills, and then encourage them to create their own work.
I recently gave an exhibition of my artwork at the Lesley Heller Gallery in New York City.
Life Off Campus:
Outside Saint Michael's I enjoy being a contra dance caller.
