I was born in 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. I received a BFA from Memphis State University and MFA from the University of Houston. In 1983, I began working with Jack Massing as part of the duo The Art Guys, a collaboration that has spanned more than 35 years. The Art Guys have presented hundreds of exhibitions, performances, lectures and other activities throughout the United States, Europe and China and our work has been covered in all media. I live with my wife and son in Houston, Texas.
