I am originally from the Finger Lakes region in upstate, NY. However, my family moved to New York City when I was 10 years old-so I guess one could say I am a New Yorker.

I received my BA from Bennington College, where I majored in Lithography and Painting and my MFA from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.  Additionally, I studied with Bernard Pfriem in Southern France, ultimately remaining there for two years.

I have had four solo exhibitions and over 70 group exhibitions in the United States and Southern France. I exhibit regularly at BWAC, Brooklyn, NY. 

In the early nineties, I designed and built the sets and co-produced several plays written by my husband, Evan Gubernick, for Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway venues. Additionally, I have had the honor of working as studio managers to both Nancy Graves and Chuck Close.

I am a member of the Gowanus Artist and Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artist Organizations. In addition to purchasing work directly from me, my work is available for sale through Martha McDonald at Brigid's Well, 109 7th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
