My formal training in art began at Washington Irving High School for Designing in New York City, followed by oil painting for 8 years at the Forest Park School of Art under Robert Burrell.
Expanding my interest in art, I began classes in watercolor at the Jackson Heights Art School for 5 years with Bob Moffett. I studied pastels using models with Dan Slapo in NY. Then upon relocating to Milford, PA, I have also taken drawing classes with Alice Stolle. I have taken classes with Len Gasp in Warwick and many other teachers throughout the years. I continued advanced training in watercolor with Matilda Gretch.
I have exhibited in Middletown Art League, Orange County Community College, Pike County Arts and Crafts, Golden Fish Gallery, Star Gallery, Hall of the Trotter in Goshen for classes in Mono. I am now active in River Valley Artist Guild, Sussex County Art Society, and still studying with Matilda Gretch for watercolor, and Marie Lui for oils.
