I began teaching 1st grade at Coleytown School in Westport, CT and later became art teacher in the Weston and Darien, CT elementary schools.

In 1978 I received  my Masters Degree in Art Therapy and Counseling, initiating an Art Therapy program for Norwalk Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry where I practiced for 17 years. I later moved on to lead art therapy groups at Silver Hill Hospital.  At the same time I was appointed Adjunct Professor of Art Therapy at Quinnipiac College in Hamden, CT.

Currently an award-winning full-time artist, I am a member of Art/Place Gallery, Women’s Caucus for Art, Westport Arts Center, Fairfield Arts Center, Silvermine Guild of Art, and am represented in the Westport School’s Permanent Art Collection.

Media appearances include Cablevision’s “Creative Women Today” and the award-winning film “Years in the Making”, a documentary which celebrates late-life creativity.
