Born in New York, I studied painting at University of the Arts, and also at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC.  As a child, I often traveled since my father was in the service. I enjoyed experiencing different places such as Denver, Nashville, San Juan and Maryland. The feeling imparted by a landscape often sticks in my mind. As an adult, I still paint landscapes and sometimes figures, or even figures that look like landscapes. It was one of these figure/landscapes that was included in an exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, “Insomnia, Landscapes of the Night”.

          For many years I taught art for the School District of Philadelphia, and then afterwards I taught online for 10 years. Now I manage the Lieberman Gallery at the Settlement Music School. I paint because it provides a link to others and connects with my feelings. The process of painting allows a visual communication with the world, and creates an unexpected new perspective, and sense of place.
