Aritst Bio:

My long and varied career includes public art, environmental art and teaching, books, costumes and just plain painting. My artwork has expanded out from the depictions of human and deities to landscapes and trees, inspired by worldwide travel and much time in nature. My study of dance has colored all of my art, making it more visceral and full of movement. I had the honor to do three residencies in Death Valley National Park, producing a children's book from the images and knowledge gained as a drawing instructor for Brooklyn College Geology Field School. I have painted in Kyrgyzstan, Antarctica, Peru, Patagonia and all over the US, but the pandemic has reminded me of the beauty in my own Brooklyn.
