Statement


I grew up in New York City.  My father was a commercial artist and took an interest in my creative abilities.  I attended art workshops with professional artists starting at the age of 5.

So from a very young age I was exposed to many forms of art in workshops, museums and books, I met artists and visited their studios.   I attended the High School of Music and Art as an art major, after which I attended SUNY Binghamton where I majored in studio theater.  After graduation I worked for the New York City recreation Dept and continued to study art at the Art Students’ League and the Educational Alliance with Chaim Gross, who gave me an award.

Since coming to Los Angeles I have continued to study and make art.  I attended the Design, Art and Architecture program at Santa Monica College where I worked with assemblage  artist George Herms, and others,  I received my MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2002.  I have shown in solo and group shows in galleries in Los Angeles and Guangzhou, China.

    My art centers mainly on the female form which I create using a variety of materials both 2 and 3 dimensional.  I present images which may evoke strange feelings and fantastic ideas by juxtaposing materials and content in unique ways.
