I have been making art and design for decades. I have been a graphic artist, jewelry, furniture and clothing designer, painter and print maker. I’ve exhibited my artwork in numerous group and solo shows in the US and Europe. I am originally from Queens, New York where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from Queens College. I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Humanities from California State University Dominguez Hills and a Practice-based Doctoral Research Degree in Fine Art-Painting from De Montfort University in Leicester, England. I also hold another Master of Arts Degree in Education. I have taught studio art and design, art history, research, and education for over 12 years at the graduate and undergraduate levels, online and on ground. I recently closed my studio in Asheville, NC where I facilitated art and design workshops for 5 years. I now live in Corvallis, Oregon. I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren.

Site-specific on Repurposed Wood


Blue Wisteria. Acrylic on repurposed plywood 24"x 47". This piece was made specifically for the space above the fireplace. There is always something to paint on!





Another piece of repurposed wood in the vinette.


I was 'on the fence' about this one. Decided to hang it on the inside, rather than the outside of the fence.  Once I actually grow some flowers, I will move it to the other side of the fence.  
Red Clover and Wasp.   24" x 48".  Acrylic on recycled plywood.
