About the Artist
I am a New York Ė born photographer who has spent almost two decades exploring self-portraiture. My images deal with aspects of and issues in my personal life - turning toward narrative, sometimes fairy-tale and romantic imagery that hint at contemporary ideologies.
Always performing for the camera, I set up dramas either within the confines of my studio or in isolated outside locations that make up the backgrounds of my stories. Technically speaking Iíve moved from traditional photographic materials to modern technology to aid in my exploration, including digital tools and software.
I graduated from Long Island University in New York with a BFA in Photography, magna cum laude. I have won several awards and I exhibit internationally. I have been reviewed in The New York Times, Newsday, and other local newspapers and have been published in fine art magazines and other printed media. Virtually, my photographs have been featured on art blogs and online fine art magazines. I have spoken at universities and artistsí groups and my images have invoked essays and prose. My work is included in several personal and institutional collections in the US, Canada, UK, Hungary and Japan.

I would like to thank some special people for being my support group all of these years and whom have helped me evolve creatively and spiritually:
Christopher Lynn, Sue Contessa, Bernice Halpern-Cutler, Ron Hammond, Dr. Stephen Lamia, and all of my models and assistants who have helped my visions come to fruition. And extra special thank you, which is pretty inadequate, really, goes to my amazing husband Gilles. Tu es ma lumiére et ma vie.
