I was born in Mississippi and grew up in New Orleans. I have been making art all my life. I graduated from Princeton with an AB in Art History/Visual Arts. There I also studied Critical Theory under David Shapiro, himself a student of Meyer Shapiro. As a studio major I studied painting under Michael David, Harvey Quaytman, Heidi Gluck and Sean Scully who was my thesis advisor. I continued my art education at the Maryland Institute College of Art.Susan Wolfe Huppman
