I’ve always had a passion for making things and sharing the process with others.  I’ve exhibited regionally and nationally and have my MFA from Brooklyn College and my BFA from the University of New Hampshire.  Given that my emphasis is on drawing, I’ve taught Figure Drawing and Senior Studio at NHIA for the past eight years as well as various studio courses at Rivier University, and Montserrat College of Art.

Recent Exhibitions include works at the Lore Degenstein Gallery in Pennsylvania, Attleboro Museum, Danforth Museum, Cedar Street Studios, South Shore Center for the Arts, University Place Gallery, Trescott Street Gallery and Bowersock Gallery in Massachusetts , the Silver Center for the Arts, Plymouth State University, Art 3, the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery and Gallery 100 in NH, , Gallery Wright in Vermont, Tucker Gallery in North Carolina, The BWAC and The Grand Gallery, National Arts Club in New York, the Fontbonne University Fine Arts Gallery in Missouri, and the Beverly Arts Center in Illinois .

I’ve been presented with over fifty drawing awards and have had my work published in several magazines and journals including the Studio Visit, North Light Books Strokes of Genius, Poets and Artists, The Café Review, The Artist’s Magazine, The New Hampshire Magazine, and Manifest INPA and INDR.

I am a member of the Portrait Society of America, the Pastel Society of America, the Women’s Caucus for Arts, and several local art associations including the CAA, the NHAA, the NAA, and both the NH WCA and Pastel Association.  You can find me as a blogger on Pinterest, Instagram and at my website:
