I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design majoring in Illustration. I worked in advertising as an Art Director for Rosenfeld, Sirowitz and Humphrey, creators of the Volkswagen ads in the 60's.
A few years later I became certified to teach Art and began working at Sachem. I taught at Sachem South, grades 9 and 10, for four years.For two years I taught at Sachem North, grades 11 and 12. The rest of my years teaching in Sachem have been here at Waverly Avenue! How time flies!
I like to paint landscapes when I have the time, inspired by the farms and wineries where I live on the North Fork of Long Island. I also like to quilt, and have made 2 full size quilts for beds as well as smaller ones. I hope to one day be able to mix quilting printmaking and dyeing fabric together to make some unique textured quilts.
