I was born in 1949 in King William County Virginia. I graduated college from Virginia Commonwealth University, with a Bachelor's in Education. My primary interest was art and museum education. I have worked as an educator, at the Valentine Museum and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond Virginia, and for the Museum for African Art, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. I have been an Artist-in-Residence at The Studio Museum in Harlem, and I am an Adjunct Instructor at, the New School, Parsons School of Design, where I teach art history. I am a writer and visual artist. My paintings are own by two museums in Manhattan, the Grey Art Gallery and the Studio Museum in Harlem. They are own by several public institutions and many more are own by private individuals.
