I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We moved to LA when I started high school.
In college, I majored in French literature and minored in Art History. After spending my junior year in Paris surrounded by the works I had only seen as reproductions in books, I knew that art would play an important role in my life.
I taught French and Spanish for 35 years at the high school level. In theadvanced classes, I always particularly enjoyed teaching a unit on French or Spanish art history.
In LA, I studied art for 12 years with Ilana Bloch in Culver City. In her studio, I met stimulating and like minded artists. I am a member of Women Painter's West, ArtShare LA, Jewish Artists Initiative and Los Angeles Art Association. I have exhibited in many group shows, receiving awardson several occasions.
