I was born in Massachusetts in a textile town with an incredible industrial past. Growing up there fostered in me a fascination with late-nineteenth century mechanical technology. From an early age, I was enthralled with mechanics, motion, and the wonders born of fertile, no-nonsense Yankee minds.
I am a Professor of Art in the Art and Design Department at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana. I teach 3‑D Design, Woodworking, Art Appreciation, Senior Seminar, and First Year Experience, among other courses. I received my MFA in Sculpture from UMASS Dartmouth.
My work has been shown in over 500 exhibitions in all 50 states and internationally. I’ve had many solo exhibitions and received over 100 awards for my art and teaching. My sculptures are in over 60 private and public collections and images of my work have appeared in Sculpture Magazine and American Craft, as well as in several books. I have been teaching at the college level since 1999 and I’ve often been asked to present lectures about art to different audiences.
