After exploring the US and my education for a several years in my 20s, I returned to NJ, finishing a BFA in 1985 at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers New Brunswick. Coming from an early interest in photography, I worked in commercial developing/printing before becoming an art educator in Newark Public Schools. I attended Pratt Institute, Graduate School of Communication Design from 1989-1993. In 2004, I received an MA in Education Administration from St. Peter’s University.
My BFA concentration was Works on Paper, specifically printmaking and drawing. For several years, I exhibited large pastel and mixed media drawings however in recent years I’ve returned to photography. Exhibition venues include: Newark Museum, Paul Robeson Gallery Rutgers Newark, The Priory, Pierro Gallery South Orange, The Perth Amboy Gallery Center of Art, Strong Women 6 – Newark, Monmouth Museum, Monmouth Art Alliance, Belmar Arts, The Guild – Shrewsbury, Jersey City Artist Studio Tour 2017, 210 Hudson/Atrium and LITM Gallery both in Jersey City.
