Originally from Northern New Jersey across the river from Manhattan. My surroundings at an early age encompassed theater, ballet, writing and music as well as art. Proximity to New York City afforded so much to absorb. I was the first member of my family to go to college starting with Montclair University and later the completion of a Masters Degree in Art Education from New York University. Early years were spent teaching Art as well as designing (free-lance Graphic Design and Illustration).
When I resettled on Cape Cod in 1984, I taught Art at Cape Cod Community College from 1984-2000. During that time, I went back to school to get a second masters degree: MFA in Visual Arts and Printmaking from UMASS in Dartmouth. Though I have always been committed to teaching Art and opening a new world of seeing and creating, my own world increasingly centers on creating my art and exhibiting both nationally and internationally. I had a recent solo show at Cape Museum of Fine Arts entitled, “Nature: the Obsessive Quest” which closed in January of 2015 and now an upcoming solo show at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, which opens February 20, 2016: “Shifting and Unfolding”
