Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Drama 1973 from Mercyhurst College, Erie PA.
For 25 years I had a career as a modern dancer and dance teacher in NYC and the SF bay area.
I had the great fortune to work as an assistant to NYC photographer, artist, and performer, Maryette Charleton, who inspired me to take up photography.
At age 50 I began classes in photography at the San Francisco Academy of Art University. I continued there for 4 years eventually focusing on advanced darkroom techniques with documentary photographer, Frank Espada.
As digital photography evolved, I continued shooting film and printing in the darkroom.
I love the Zen experience of spending hours in the darkroom working with one negative producing a few great prints!
