ASL 2025

I was born in Allentown Pennsylvania. For many years I was a teacher of foreign languages and Literatures at the College and University levels both in the US and abroad. My academic teaching experience includes Temple University, Brooklyn College, Manhattanville College, The University of California at Davis, Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, where I was also a teacher trainer. In addition to Budapest, I have lived in London and Moscow.

For the past 15 years I have worked as a Real Estate broker in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I have experience in building renovation, real estate finance and management.

While I was living in Moscow I began painting in the studio of Valery Guereskevitch. I also was involved in forming an icon study group and visited many prominent artists in their studios with an international womens group. After returning from Moscow in 2000 I began taking classes at The National Academy and The Art Students League. I have studied with Henry Finkelstein, Frank Mason, Gregg Kreutz, Ron Sher, Harvey Dinnerstein, Dan Gheno and now with Leonid Gervits. I have studied privately with Andy Reiss, and Frank Arcuri. My works have been exhibited by The Grace Foundation in New York City, The Manhattan Borough President's Office, The Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Juried Exhibition, and The Annual Phillips Mill Juried Exhibit in New Hope Pennsylvania.
