I am an artist in monotype, watercolor, acrylic, collage and encaustic. 

I graduated UCLA in Painting/Sculpture/Design/Graphic Art in 1974.  I careered in graphic design for Familian Corp until 1982, designing newsletters and advertisements.  In 1991 I joined a watercolor class at Everywomen's Village in Van Nuys taught by Alex Vilumsons.  He attached metaphysical approaches to color and right brain drawing techniques that I had never come across before.  The class was also a community of artists I am still involved with today, Artist Co-op 7.  I had my first group show with them and exhibit in their venues around the city.

When Alex passed away, Artist Co-op 7 continued, and I was invited to join the Art Panel and teach classes.  When the Village closed, we moved to the American Jewish University in 2000 and we have been there ever since with a thriving program.  I partner-teach Watercolor in Winter Session and Figure Drawing Spring Session.

In 2004 I went with Ruth Weisberg and a group of artists to Florence, Italy to print at Santa Reparata International School of Art.  Ruth demonstrated the basic methods of monotype and we worked for a week discovering our own methods.  We visited Italy twice more to a friend's farmhouse studio and lodge at Giogalto in Tuscany.  More trips followed: painting in Norway, China, and then a painting/printing experience in Jerusalem.

I maintain a print studio in Ventura in addition to my home studio, and print in retreat with friends in Santa Barbara.

Today I continue at all my involvements: Artist Co-op 7, Art Panel and Instructor; Collage Artists of America, President; Women Painters West; Valley Watercolor Society; USC Hillel Art Gallery, Chair; Jewish Artists Initiative; Women's Caucus; USC Roski School of Art and Design, Board of Councilors.
