I am currently the Head of the St. Paul's School Art Department. This department is made up of four programs- theatre, dance, music, and fine arts (of which I am also program director.) I am the director of the Crumpacker Gallery- a new state of the art teaching gallery associated with St. Paul's School. I teach painting, drawing, printmaking, art history, architecture, and curatorial studies. I work out of my home studio.
I began painting as a student at the Overseas School of Rome where I used drawing and painting as a means of visual note taking in art history classes. I graduated from Holy Cross College in Worcester Massachusetts with a degree in art history. From there I moved to New York and worked for a Wall Street firm doing research and securities analysis. The firm was dynamic and the work was extremely interesting. After two years, however, I realized that I was more passionate about art than I was about business. I began working at St. Paul's School in September of 1983 and have become totally immersed in this fully residential boarding school. Over the years I have taken classes at various institutes, but my most significant education has come from working under experienced painters. In 1983 I spent a month at Holy Cross working in water color with Michael Tang sj. In 1989 I met Thomas Buechner who was commissioned by St. Paul's to paint a series of landscapes and eventually school portraits. From Tom I learned about oil painting and the various technical aspects of the medium. I travel quite frequently, painting in Europe and the US. While on sabbatical in France (1998-1999), I spent the year painting landscape and still life in Provence. During the summers I teach in Germany at Bild-Werk Frauenau- an adult education summer academy in the Bavarian forest not far from the Czech border. Outside of St. Paul's and my own studio I serve on the board of trustees of The Kimball-Jenkins Estate- a Historical site that houses a thriving art school for students of all ages.
