The Art of
Ever since I was a young child I have always been interested in art and enjoyed expressing myself with a variety of art materials. I went to a special high school in New York City for students who were talented in music and art (Music and Art High School) and decided that I wanted to be a professional artist when I grew up. Studying art education at Old Dominion University (B.S. in Art Education) and Queens College , City University of New York (M. S. in Art Education) I began a 32 year career as an artist and art educator.
I have had solo or small group shows at the Union League Club in Chicago, the University of IL in Chicago, the CTT Gallery, Northwestern University, Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake, Milieu Design Inc. in Barrington, Dunton Gallery in Arlington Heights, the Deer Path Gallery in Lake Forest, Arlington Gallery in Arlington Heights, Multiple Choices in Chicago, Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake and in many businesses, banks, public libraries, and government buildings in the Chicago area.
I have retired from teaching art in Glenview School District #34. Now I am enjoying painting in my home studio and taking classes or workshops with other respected artists.
