Biography


After a lifetime of working in art-related fields, including over a decade in advertising, stints at MOMA and the Guggenheim, I finally became a full-time working artist in January 2017.


I have come about my artistic training in a long and round-about way. My studies include:


· Art History, as an undergraduate at Boston University

· Black and white photography at The International Center for Photography

· Color theory, art history, textiles, and drafting at the New York School for Interior Design

· Masters’ Degree in Arts Administration from NYU, including courses in art history, public art,           and art marketing

· Courses and workshops at the Arts Students League in mixed media, encaustic, oil painting, and abstract art

· Encaustic workshops with a range of highly regarded instructors
