Biography

     I have lived and created in Brooklyn, NY for many years. 
I studied art at the New School in NYC, then earned my MFA in sculpture from Pratt Institute. 
Some years later I began teaching art to both emotionally disturbed and visually impaired children at the New York Institute for Special Education.
      I earned my MA in Art Therapy at NYU, to enhance that work. 
      Since leaving the school I have begun working with older adults with Alzheimer's and other dementias.
      I have exhibited work in NYC and in Peekskill,NY.
      Currently I am creating outdoor sculptures as well as projects such as pot racks and "wrought iron" signs. I recently created an eternal light.
