"I am a visual artist, author-illustrator, and educator.
As a visual artist for over 35 years, I have painted landscapes, icons, and portraits. My mixed media technique incorporates traditional painting in gouache, acrylic, and oil with the collage of original photographs, found imagery, and natural objects. I have shown my work in a wide variety of spaces, including commercial galleries, museums, schools, hospitals, libraries, seminaries, synagogues, non-profits, and community spaces, including Harriet Tubman House; MA State House; Boston Center for the Arts; MGH; Boston Public Library; Hebrew College; Cambridge Hospital; DeCordova Museum; and Yeshiva University Museum. My work has received fellowships from the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, has won exhibition awards, and is held in many private and nonprofit corporate collections.
As an author-illustrator, I have published two published children’s pictures books: Love Me Later (2005) and I Only Like What I Like (2003), both named Notable by the Association of Jewish Libraries.
As an educator, I serve academically underserved nontraditional students, especially English language learners (ELLs) and developmental native English speakers. I received my master’s degree in education from Harvard Graduate School of Education. I currently work at Somerville Center for Adult Learning (SCALE), teaching and advising students on college and career readiness skills."
