I was born in Brooklyn, NY, into a family of artists, and have always been working in one medium or another. After studying Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts, I exhibited and sold my glass art in galleries in NYC, Brooklyn, NY and New Hope, Pa. 
        I later returned to school to pursue a masters degree in Art Education and Supervision and Administration in the Arts.  I then worked as the Art Specialist at the Brooklyn Children's Museum and was fortunate to secure a teaching position in a High School with a specialized program for the arts. After six years I became the Assistant Principal of Fine Arts at Edward R. Murrow High School. 
Although I loved my students, and found it gratifying to support other art educators I missed concentrating on my own work.
        In 2004 I left my supervisory position to focus on my own art career. 
Moving to the Hudson Valley, inspired by its natural beauty and artist communities, my art has flourished. Within this time, I developed my own style and show my paintings regularly in a variety of different venues throughout the Hudson Valley, New England, New York City, New Jersey and California. 
I have exhibited with TheoGanz Studio, Beacon, NY, Denise Bibro Fine Art, NYC, Fresh Paint Contemporary, Culver City, Ca, Beacon Shortwave Gallery, Stone Harbor, NJ, 13 Forest Gallery, Arlington, Ma., and Hal Bromm Gallery, NYC. 
        It has been a privilege for me to show my work in local galleries in the Hudson Valley as well as having been recognized on the worldwide stage by being chosen to participate in the 55th Venice Biennale, Art Southampton, The LA Art Fair, and Miami Context.
