I am an intuitive artist whose paintings and photograph reflect the complexities, textures and surprises of life.  I have exhibited my paintings and photographs at numerous New York City venues including:  La MaMa Galleria, Pen and Brush Gallery, the Modernage Gallery, the Donnell Library and the French Institute/Alliance Francais.  I am represented in New York City by The Pen and Brush, Inc. gallery.


I am a former public relations executive and current radio travel talk show producer/host of Let’s Travel Radio! (, who now spends most of my time in my studio “learning to paint like a child” – intuitively — without inhibitions or limits.


Much of my work incorporates materials including sand, string, bird feathers, glass beads, and even my husband’s underwear. “Things turn up serendipitously. One day, as I was about to do the laundry, I noticed that Michael’s T-shirt was in tatters. Thus was born ‘Italy’s Dirty Laundry’.”


In my new blog, “As an Artist…”  I invite everyone to share my curiosity about the world swirling around me filled with art, food, travel, culture and — most of all — my encounters with extraordinary people. And I hope you’ll share some of your experiences with me.
