I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1978 with a BFA, Honors. During the summer of 1977, I received a fellowship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture where I was awarded the Sculpture Prize. Graduate studies followed at the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA in 1982). I received a fellowship for the MacDowell Colony in 1994.
