I was born in Brooklyn, NY, into a family of artists and have always been working in one medium or another. My love for the materials of art has led me to explore a range of techniques while attending Philadelphia College of Art, School of Visual Arts, and Parsons School of Design.  I received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and a MA from the joint program Parsons School of Design and Bank Street College of Education created for their masters program in Supervision and Administration in the Arts.  I have studied color theory, painting, printmaking, sculpture, art history, animation and art education.

      I have been inspired by the natural beauty and artist communities around me as well as my inspirational travels to Italy and other European and Middle Eastern countries.  In the past twenty years, my work has flourished and I have had opportunities to exhibit throughout New England, the Hudson Valley New York, New York City, and California.  My work has been recognized on the worldwide stages of the 55th Venice Biennale, a group exhibition on the island of Procida, Italy, Art Southampton, The LA Art Fair, Miami Context and the 59th Venice Biennale, where my animation videos were shown at the European Cultural Center, Palazzo Bembo.  I am pleased to now include Art Taipei, Taiwan, 2023.

         I am a mother of two daughters and my family has given me great joy.  I value the importance of living a creative life and I am pleased that I was able to pass that on to my daughters who are now both in creative fields.  I cherish my husband and my artist friends knowing  that we all need support. I am lucky to be able to work as an artist.
