I began painting 40 years ago, and I switched primarily to working in video about 30 years ago. While I often return to painting, I remain fascinated with the power and flexibility of the video medium. As video advances technologically, it continues to provide me with the means to "paint in time".
I received a B.A. degree in Studio Art from Oberlin College in 1971 and a Master of Science in Visual Studies degree from the M.I.T. Center For Advanced Visual Studies in 1981. After teaching Video Art at the Massachusetts College of Art from 1984-1988, I joined the faculty of the UMBC Department of Visual Arts in 1988 where I continue to teach Video Art. I served as Graduate Program Director of the Imaging and Digital Art MFA program from 2001-2007, and currently serve as Chairperson of the department.
