About

As an artist, I specialize in multimedia images with a strong focus in printmaking and book construction. My socially charged work is currently a part of 60 public collections and has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. This has given my work a platform to educate, provide research opportunities for visual work, and a continued legacy for many years to come. I have had a total of 19 solo exhibitions and participated in 142 group shows. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, IN and a Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. I am currently an Associate Professor of Printmaking and Artist Books at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. I continue to lecture and teach as a visiting artist at various institutions around the country like the Rollins College, The University of Texas – Arlington, Millsaps College, Murray State University, and Millikin University to name a few. I also teach workshops at places like the Center for Book Arts in NYC, the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and the John Michael Kohler Art Center. I am the author of a book titled, "Creating Books & Boxes" and have published several articles for “Bound & Lettered,” “Graphic Impressions,” and “TOP Printmaking”.
