STATEMENT

My art work stems from a private place where a combination of emotion, sensation, and intuition rule. My work has evolved steadily over the past thirty years to where I am today, concentrating on meditative themes from nature.

 

RESUME

In 1975, I received my MFA from Brooklyn College. Since then I have devoted my life to art. Having had my first show in a juried exhibit in the Brooklyn Museum in 1977, I've been able to follow through with twenty solo shows and countless numbers of juried group shows in the New York City area, nationally and most recently, internationally. I’ve been awarded seven grants from the New York State Council on the Arts, one NYC Public Artworks grant and in 1991, was honored by the National Organization of Italian American Women as a Woman in History. My art is included in thirty-four corporate and university collections, as well as in many private collections. In 2005, I was awarded a Doctoral Equivalency in Fine Art by the City University of New York, where I currently adjunct as a Full Professor. I also teach at St John's University, Staten Island Campus, where I am co-curator of the Loretto Exhibition Gallery.
