I received a B.A. in photography from UCLA in the 1970’s, where I had the opportunity to work extensively with Robert Heinecken. As a photographer, I believe passionately in the notion of art as catalyst to stimulate the heart, the mind and the memory. My love of and belief in the power of words has also played a significant part in many of my projects. I have exhibited my photographs in many group exhibitions throughout the United States, and have pieces in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts,Houston and the Center for Photography at Woodstock permanent print collection, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art/College Art Gallery at S.U.N.Y., New Paltz, New York. I also conduct photography classes and projects with the children and adolescents I work with in a non-public school setting. The project, “inside/out” exhibited the photographs and writing of adolescents on the autism spectrum, and was shown at arena 1 gallery in Santa Monica, California in the Spring of 2015.
