My Bio
I was born in Manchester Connecticut in 1957. I grew up in Coventry and Mansfield. I've been painting and writing and drawing for forty years. At the University of Connecticut I studied Theater, concentrating in Literature and Puppetry. I've performed with Bread and Puppet Theater, The Expanding Secret Company, Zeltzman and Colburn, The Ninth Street Theater, and solo at the Cheap Art Store, and collaboratively at the Armpit Gallery. At the Small Free Inn I produced many murals for their Saturday night dinners. A condition of their production was that they would only be seen for a single evening. At the Cheap Art Store I produced a series of murals over a period of seven years; the murals were seen for periods of from one month to one year, and then painted over. My books have been self-published, my plays self-produced, or made in collaboration with other artists. Max Schumann and I have been collaborating on installations of Cheap Art since 1986.
