I reside in San Diego, on a property I grew up on. I was the Dean of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 2002 until 2014 and have taught painting and drawing at a number of colleges and universities.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California at Santa Cruz, attended the New York Studio School in the mid seventies, and received my MFA in Painting from the Yale School of Art in 1979.
Although I do large scale figure and still life paintings, I prefer my drawings to my paintings. Most drawings are 22 by 30”, except for some of the figure and still life drawings which are 11 by 15”.
