He produces his powerful reduction woodcut prints on a large French Tool etching press. He has exhibited with the Charlotte Printmakers of North Carolina, and was invited by the Fitchburg Art Museum to participate in the New England Impressions exhibit which traveled to West Germany. His works may be found in the collections of the Cape Ann Museum, Boston Athenaeum, Portland Museum of Art, Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Duxbury Art Complex, Currier Museum of Art, and numerous corporate and private collections. He lived and worked in Gloucester from 1978-1989 and now resides in Maine. He maintains a studio and gallery in Portsmouth, NH.

Funding for this program was made possible through a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which promotes excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences, in order to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.
