I was born in NYC, to the child of immigrants (my mother) and an immigrant (my father), families who had fled the pogroms of Eastern Europe, and, in the case of my father’s father, the Russian army, in the early 20th century. I studied printmaking with Michael Mazur at Brandeis University and upon graduation received a Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellowship to study printmaking at Stanley William Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris. I returned home to study painting and received my MFA from Queens College CUNY, before turning to photography 20 years later. My artistic life, as well as my personal life, has been a series of moves, in search of resonance.

A monograph of my work, a tribute to my mother’s love of the movies, SILVER SCREEN, was published by Daylight Books in 2015.

I was represented by George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco and Los Angeles, for 10 years.

My work is included in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The William Benton Museum in Storrs, Connecticut and Credit Suisse in Research Triangle Park, as well as many private collections.
