Biography

I have come about my artistic training in a long and round-about way. During under graduate school at Boston University I studied art history and design. After many years of working in the advertising industry, both in New York and internationally, I studied black and white photography at the International Center for Photography. I continued my study of art history at the New York School for Interior Design and took courses in color theory, textiles and finishes, and drafting. I received my masters in Visual Arts Administration from New York University, where I studied contemporary art, public art, arts management and interned at the Museum of Modern Art. After working at the Guggenheim in the public programming department, I curated an event featuring over 75 artists for the City of New York in celebration of the women’s suffrage centennial, Declaration of Sentiments: The Remix. I studied mixed media and encaustic at the Arts Student League of New York and have taken numerous encaustic workshops with a range of highly regarded artists working in the medium.
