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 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, working on TV commercials in NYC. This evolved, as styles changed, into becoming a motion graphics, special effects camerawoman - shooting commercials for American and South American TV.

    As computers were threatening the film industry, I accepted a job at Coleco Industries Inc. as an artist/animator for the Coleco Vision, Atari and Intellivision video game systems.

     My current work has been very influenced by my work in film special effects, the dynamics of motion graphics, and the ability  to now work in a flexible digital environment.
