Curriculum Vitae

INTRODUCTION

It is apparent that there are significant gaps in my exhibition record. This is because I had two rather catastrophic events: a fire which destroyed my home, studio, work, materials and all records of exhibitions, sales, and locations of work, etc. The second was a life altering injury. While I have recovered from the trauma of the fire and learned to live with the results of the injury, there was a significant period of time in which I was not able to actively work. It has taken time to build a new body of work that I feel is strong. I am now at a point where the work meets my standards of quality and I have enough confidence in it to begin showing again.

I have reconstructed my exhibition history et al. to the best of my memory. It is not complete but too much time has passed for me to give an accurate accounting.
