I have been captivated by the visual arts for as long as I can remember. For me, the true job of an artist is to notice and to record that noticing in a meaningful way. I find cathedrals and cracks in the pavement equally worthy of interest.
I have enjoyed a long and varied career in the visual arts. Currently, I serve as Director of ArtReach and Community Programs at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD. My work is on view at the Green Phoenix Gallery in Easton. I have a B.A. in Fine Arts from New York University and an M.Ed. in Art Education from Lesley University. In addition, I have studied at the Art Students League in New York and the Accademia delle Arti Applicate in Milan, Italy.
Exploring various media allows me to work on several different series at the same time. I work in graphite, colored pencil, acrylic, oil, collage and clay. I have participated in over a dozen shows in the U.S. and Italy and my work is in private collections in both countries.
I have illustrated two books: Risotto, A Taste of Milan (Harper & Row) and The Essential Kitchen Gardener (Henry Holt).
