I was educated at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (BFA and MEd-art) and have been teaching art, crafts, and photography continuously since 1976. Currently, I teach studio courses in drawing, design, and painting as well as online sections of Art History and Appreciation at Midlands Technical College in Columbia, South Carolina. I keep virtual office hours using "Meeting Spaces" on Tutor.com and currently conduct studio art classes virtually using Zoom.us. I'm the Faculty Lead of the Art Studio Pathway and Art Coordinator of seven Art History and Appreciation instructors (Ground, Online, and Hybrid sections).
I've participated in a number of juried shows beginning in 1975 and have won recognition and sales for graphite drawings, acrylic works on canvas, photographs, and mixed-media works on cold-pressed watercolor paper.
I've been married to Charlene Alger since 1975. Together we have raised five children.
