I exhibit in museums, art-parks, other public venues and have work in private collections. My first permanent outdoor public artwork is installed at the Ann Frank Garden in Arboretum Park, Dix Hills NY. I received grants and awards including NYSCA, NYFA SOS, and Chase Individual Artist Grants, for engaging the public in the process of making. I am an art department faculty member at USDAN Center for Visual and Performing Arts teaching ceramics and firing two large gas kilns. I received my BFA from SUNY Purchase and my MFA from CUNY Queens College in 2012.

In 2013 Sculpture Key West used my installation of repurposed hammocks as their press image in ArtNews Magazine (February 2013) and in The Brooklyn Rail Newspaper (color centerfold) (Dec12/Jan13).
