I am a 7th generation Vermonter, born in Rutland in1958. I count among my ancestors a great-grandfather, great-grandmother and great-great-grandfather who were artists.
I am a painter, kinetic sculptor, book illustrator, art educator and political cartoonist. From 1981 to 2012 I was the art teacher at the Browns River Middle School. I was the president of the Northern Vermont Artist Association from 1995 to 2011, and I currently serve as the NVAA’s Vice President.
I have been exhibiting my paintings in the region since 1978. My political cartoon strip Mr. Brunelle Explains It All appeared weekly in Seven Days from 2016 to 2020, and it now appears monthly in Funny Times and Humor Times. I am a charter member of the Vermont Comic Creators Group.
