About me

Location United States
Introduction I'm an artist who lives in Philadelphia. I'm also a poet whose plays were produced here by The Philadelphia Company, Theatre of the Edge, The Brick Playhouse, and The City Theatre of Wilmington. My paintings are shown at Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, California, and Kevin Butler Gallery in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard. I went to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and have taught drawing and painting at the Fleisher Art Memorial, the Delaware Art Museum, The Delaware College of Art and Design, and the Cheltenham Center for the Arts. View from the Studio is a blog project to observe and respond to art. It is done in the spirit of Fairfield Porter, Robert Henri, and Emerson. The purpose of my other blog, Poems for a New Century, is another matter entirely. Future Tense, the first of my plays, was written in verse and premiered at The Philadelphia Company, forerunner to The Philadelphia Theatre Company. Marathon, Consummation, and Never Enough were also written in poetry suitable for their purpose. Poems for a New Century will experiment further to offer some kindling for this new century of our awareness.
