She studied at Maple Leaf Pottery in Sea Cliff, NY and is a member of Potters Council and the Long Island Craft Guild. Her work is available at The Rubin Museum, New York, NY; Trapani Art & Frame Gallery, Manhasset, NY; Curds & Whey, Locust Valley, NY; and various crafts shows on Long Island; and by appointment at her Locust Valley studio.
