I grew up in Long Island New York and enjoyed going to museums and taking pictures in NY while young. I attended SCCC and received a AS in Visual Arts. I also attended Brookdale in NJ and studied jewelry arts. Later, I studied art Ed. at ODU in VA. I have taught there in Norfolk, and in Korea. I volunteered in Thialand and in VA again before moving back to NY. Shows that I have been involved with include the Nasty Women exhibit in Queens in 2017, and the Stockley Gardens Festival in Norfolk, VA.
