A Note From the Artist
Growing up in a family of artists made art a very important part of my life. My love of painting landed me at Syracuse University, where I received a BFA in painting in 1984. I have been painting ever since. I have had a very fortunate and full life that has given me many opportunities for using my creativity and artistic abilities. I have worn many hats: mother, art teacher, Montessori teacher, head of school and college faculty member. The hat that never comes off is that of artist. In more recent years I have also started to work in clay. My paintings and ceramic pieces are an extension of my emotional and physical life. They are the most authentic part of me.
