My love of drawing and painting began when I was a child in Chelsea, Massachusetts, where I studied art with Vincent Tringale, Chairman of the Art Department at Boston State College. During high school and while studying chemistry at Boston University, where I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, I continued to take art classes. I have studied at the Leventhal/Sidman Jewish Community Center, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Brookline Arts Center and the DeCordova Art Museum in Lincoln, where I served as a docent. I have exhibited throughout New England, including annual juried shows such as the Cape Cod Art Association All New England Show and the Monotype Guild of New England Annual Show, the Helena and Jack Gordon Art Exhibit at Hebrew College and the Mall at Chestnut Hill. I am the recipient of awards from the Newton Art Association, the Brookline Art Association, the Monotype Guild of New England, Masur Art Museum in Louisiana and the Newton Senior Center, which purchased one of the paintings in my “Memories” series as a winner in its Citywide Contest for Original Artwork in 1995. In 2002, I was granted a Massachusetts Cultural Council award to study silkscreen monoprinting and to prepare for an exhibit entitled Miriam in Bible and Midrash at the Depot Square Gallery in Lexington, Massachusetts. (Midrash refers to stories or explications the ancient Rabbis created to fill lacunae in the biblical text or to flesh out characters about whom we have little information.)

I work in oils, watercolors, monoprints, collographs and abstractions from nature in mixed media. I taught oil painting in the Winchester Adult Education program and Tufts University Women’s Center and currently teach “Monoprinting without a Press” in the Newton Adult Education Program. My favorite themes are shoes, still life, landscape, florals, teacup three-dimensional collages and biblical women.
