Born in Brooklyn & raised on Long Island, she is self-taught and enjoys painting still-life & outdoor scenes. In 2006, she was honored to paint the official New York State egg for the White House at Easter time. The egg is now part of the permanent collection of the George W. Bush Library in Texas. She also had a 13 year run at the Chrysalis Gallery in Southampton, where her miniature paintings were sold. She has taught kids & adults to paint on canvas, wood, and eggs too!
