Born and raised in Manhattan, I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree
from Goddard College, an experimental liberal arts program in Vermont
with additional training at the Art Institute of Boston. After working in
New York photo labs, studios and galleries and employment as a
photographer’s assistant, I returned to school and received a Master of
Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
Thanks to this varied education, I’ve enjoyed a variety of work
experiences as a freelance photographer. My aptitude in portraiture and
in technology grew. My continued practice in all styles has helped me
become more informed as a workshop presenter, a professor of
photography at several colleges in North Carolina and an instructor to
high school aged students at risk.
My work has been exhibited at numerous locations in North Carolina, as
well as in Chicago, Colorado, Miami, New York and Seattle, and
internationally in Munich and Vienna. I am a mother of three grown
sons. Currently, I live in Carrboro.
