I was born in Brooklyn NY, so naturally, I thought that the entire world was completely built up and packed with hordes of people. For family outings, we would often go to the museums in Manhattan (which I hated at first). But hate turned into love and looking at paintings and illustrations soon became a new world for me to escape into, full of color, history, landscape, and imagination.
After a broad fine arts study, I began a career in animation. My first job was working on an animated feature film that was being made on Long Island, and then to NYC to work on animated TV commercials. My work in animation evolved into becoming a motion graphics, special effects camerawoman, shooting commercials for American and South American TV. With computers threatening the film industry, I accepted a job in the video game industry as an artist/animator.
Now, with my digital effects photography, I am still very influenced by the visual dynamics of special effects film, but now enjoy combining that with the ability to alter and enhance each image in a digital environment.
I've also written and illustrated a children's Ebook - ALEX & THE DATA BUGS, have two grown sons, am married and live in Connecticut.
