1985-2012 I have taught editorial and magazine design at Parsons School of Design, and Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator at New York University
2013-present I have refocused my creative background to concentrate on painting, specificially with watercolor. The work is based on what I see and experience in Brooklyn, New York City and through traveling, with a focus on landscapes, seascapes, still life, and portraiture.
1976-2014 As a magazine art director and designer, I have collaborated with editors and publishers to create magazines and editorial content for numerous publications. Some titles I have worked on include: Family Circle, Hearst Magazines, Weight Watchers, Target Stores, The New York Times, Ms. Magazine, Sixth and Spring Books, McCall’s, Redbook, Fairchild Publications, Harvard Business Review, Scientific America, Big Apple Greeter. I continue to take on design work if the project interests me and the time allows me to concentrate on my painting.
I have lived in Brooklyn since 1983, New York City since 1976, and haven’t looked back since.
