Raised in New York City, I lived in a railroad flat on the west side of town. My mother owned a dress shop on Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan. As a young girl, I used to sit outside and sketch the buildings and people in the neighborhood. So I decided, because the walls of my bedroom were so dark and dingy, that I would cover the walls with a mural of a street scene.

What a difference it made!

In my teens I attended the Art Students League for a time. My medium was pen and ink, watercolor, and acrylics.
Later, my place of business sponsored an art contest for its employees. It was judged by the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. I won for a street scene.
As the years went on, I began to travel both in the U.S. and abroad. My love for art was changing from street scenes to the animals I encountered on my trips. I was enthralled by their beauty and grandeur and wanted to put them on canvas. The US inspired me to paint horses, cows, sheep, pigs, and other little critters. My travels abroad included camels from Egypt, lions and zebras from Africa, elephants, and monkeys from India and pandas from China.
My love for animals has continued over the years. Even so, every now and then a building or street scene will surface.

Enjoy viewing life through my pallet and share with me the love I feel and express for the world around me. I live in Glendale, California and participate in art fairs in Glendale and surrounding areas.
