I am a native New Yorker – born and raised in Brooklyn / Queens.


In 1973 I married a wonderful military man and left the

effervescence of New York to accompany him to Europe.  There I

began my 21-year career as a dedicated military spouse in the U.S.

Air Force.  Concurrently, I launched my college adjuncting career

with City Colleges of Chicago at Zaragoza Air Force Base in Spain.


In 1992 I opened an antiques and collectibles business before

transitioning into real estate in 2006.


In 2012 I moved to Asheville, NC and discovered the exciting field of hospitality for which to work.  

 I felt an inspiration to paint in this tiny mountain town like no other place I ever resided.   

I left my heart and soul there.


In 2017 it was time to move to Florida and help out with family matters.  I continue to work

in both hospitality and education for a living; thus, my life-long passion to be a working artist remains a distant dream.
