I grew up in New Jersey, about 20 minutes west of New York City. I always thought I'd teach elementary school, but I started taking art more seriously when I was around 16. I had a teacher who taught me amazing tricks and techniques, and was the most honest and straight forward art teacher I had ever met. I decided to go to the University of Arizona for a BFA in Art Education. Since 2005, I have been teaching high school art and video production in Tucson. I work mainly in colored pencil, but I also work in charcoal, white charcoal, graphite, oil pastel, soft pastel, and oil paint.
