I have been painting for more than forty years. I received an undergraduate degree in art at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, and a MFA from the Pratt Institute in New York, where I studied with George McNeil – and therefore consider Hans Hofmann, McNeil’s teacher, to be my painterly grandfather.

Over the years my work has been exhibited in many one-woman, juried and group shows, notably: The William Benton Museum, Storrs, Ct.; Pratt Institute, Brooklyn; Atlantic Monthly Gallery, Boston; Boston City Hall, invitational; Silvermine Guild (award); Secrest Gallery, Wellfleet; Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center; Provincetown Art Association and Museum; Acme Fine Art, Newbury St., Boston; the Cherry Stone Gallery, Wellfleet, Mass.; and 13FOREST Gallery in Arlington, Mass.

In addition to one-woman shows, I have exhibited my paintings in group shows which included works by Hans Hofmann, George McNeil, Robert Motherwell, Berenice Abbot, Edwin Dickinson, Red Grooms, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Beauchamp, Will Barnett, Jack Tworkov, and Tobi Kahn, among others.

Publications include a Boston Globe Magazine cover; collections include Graham Gund and the Bank of America; commissions include the Truro garden of Jim Bennette and David Cowan, Acme Fine Art.

I have also taught drawing and painting to people of all ages, from preschool to adult, in New York City; Storrs, Ct. (University of Connecticut); Provincetown, Mass., and the Boston area (including Brockton Art Center/Fuller Memorial).

During the course of my career, I have maintained studios in: Manhattan’s Soho; Eddie Euler’s studios in Provincetown; Vernon Street Studios, Somerville, Mass.; and currently in what was the summer kitchen of my family’s 19
th century New England farmhouse.
