About Me
As chair of the Art Department of St. Joseph's College, Brooklyn campus, I teach both studio and art history classes. My art practice has evolved from the emphasis on painting up to and ncluding the MFA program at Pratt Institute, to photography and mixed media. For the last 7 years my primary focus has been in printmaking, with summers spent in residencies at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, Italy. My upcoming sabbatical will be spent preparing for a major exhibit at the SG gallery there. I enjoy volunteering at the North Brooklyn Boat Club, and paddling a canoe on The Newtown Creek in Brooklyn.
