I have been creating prints for many years.

A graduate of Yale in fine Arts, I love color and shapes. Whether photos, composites or paintings, color and light are the most important aspects which create the feeling and joy of the works.

I starting taking pictures in high school and was the photo editor of our yearbook. I had a darkroom and printed my photos in black and white. I went to a course taught by Minor White my freshman year in college. I travelled thoughout Europe during the summer and came back to Yale and decided to major in Art, specifically painting. The summer before my senior year, I was fortunate enough to spend it at the Yale School of Music and Art in Norfolk, Connecticut. Students from all over the country spent the summer painting, printmaking and photographing. It was the best summer of my life, living in an artist community and enjoying the art and music.

After Yale, I spent a semester at Hunter College in New York but dropped out because I didn't want to teach art but be an artist. I did some art for years but family took priority. When digital photography arrived, I started taking pictures again. Then worked on printmaking.
