I've been making art all of my life. I grew up on Coney Island, in Brooklyn New York in the 1960s and 70s. It was a unique setting, one which I took for granted during those years. (Doesn't everyone have a view of a roller coaster and the ocean from their living room window?) It wasn't until many years later that I realized how much that colorful and unusual environment had an impact on me as a young artist. I studied design and art history in college. Many years later I went back to school to earn my M.S. in Communication, landing me in my current job in higher education marketing communication. My husband and I have three children, and now that they are grown, I am spending more time making and promoting my art. A passion of mine is helping adults, especially those over 50, connect to their creativity to live a fuller life.
