After graduating from Glassboro State College (Rowan State College) majoring in art, I began what would become a twenty-five year law enforcement career. As a police officer I took the opportunity to employ my artistic talents as a composite artist, drawing suspects for several police agencies after interviewing witnesses and victims of crimes. I am proud to say that my renderings were responsible for the identification and arrest of numerous perpetrators. Throughout my alternative life journey I continued my love of oil painting. Now, after retirement, I have begun this new journey. I am currently a member of Oil Painters of America, Society of New Jersey Artists and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club.
