Biography

I have an MFA from Hunter College. My abstract paintings have been in the Whitney Museum of American Art. But for the last decade I’ve been writing and painting for kids. I enjoy the honest responses I get from preschoolers and kindergarteners. Recently, I stumbled on a youtube of a kindergartener reading Lily’s Cat Mask. She read it with so much feeling. She even changed her voice to fit each character. That’s about as good as it gets.
