I grew up in New York City. I learned how to use a camera from my father at about age 11, and how to print shortly after that. We worked in a tiny room in our apartment on an old table with water carried in from the kitchen. The magic of the process became clear when the image appeared in the developer, and because it was never as sparkling as desired, I also knew there were secrets to be learned.
I am self-taught with additional instruction from Visual Studies Workshop and Maine Photographic Workshop. I graduated from Vassar College, and have many years of professional and teaching experience
I currently live and teach in New Haven. I have twice received an Artist Fellowship from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, and exhibit nationally. I am a member of City Gallery in New Haven. My work is in public, corporate, and private collections.
