Artist Biography

 

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.
