I was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. I moved to CT in 1980 and have lived and worked in CT for the past 38 years. My affection for painting began at fourteen when I worked alongside my father at Variety Scenic Studios and Empire Stages in NYC. He was an inventive artist, and my first teacher and mentor. While building and painting sets, I had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the most creative artists in New York. Artists as varied as Mark Chagall, Spike Lee and Jim Henson were at the studio at one time or another. I gained traditional old master skills and non traditional techniques from the generous scenic artists. My first love is representational painting, but I am willing and able to use a variety of unconventional techniques when needed to achieve my vision.
I graduated SUNY at Buffalo. I continued to create and study art taking classes at Silvermine Art School. I attended advanced workshops and studied with independent master artist in their studios. I am a member and Past Chairman of The Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists. Other affiliations include The Westport Artist Collective, Connecticut Women Artist Org, The Portrait Society of America,Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Arts Club, International Guild of Realism, Oil Painter of America and American Impressionist Society. My work has been displayed at several New York and Connecticut museums, universities and galleries. My paintings are included in the collections of businesses, medical offices and private clients.
