"All I have ever wanted to do was draw, and all I have ever wanted to draw were people. I am a classically trained anatomist, but instead of the rigid, mechanical representation of muscle, bone and flesh, I look for the subtlety of the line; the strength and sensuality of the thick, thin and lost line. The curve of the neck and arch of the spine speak volumes."
She teaches extensively on the East End at Guild Hall, the Veterans Hall in Southampton, The Art Barge, the Southampton Cultural Center and is a member of Southampton Artists and the Artists Alliance of East Hampton.
