I graduated with a BFA in sculpture from Carnegie Tech in 1964. I wasn't
going to be a teacher.... NO WAY!
Choices? Peace Corps in Peru, or archaeology school in Israel. The Peace
Corps sent me to Iran to teach English as a foreign language. I set up
summer schools including arts, and have never looked back.
I'm a teacher foremost and an artist along with it. But... my students
always come first.
I have taken a nice sunny room in an old manufacturing plant that has
wonderful artists in it. It is the most organized part of my life, my paper
cutting and my bookmaking happily live side by side. I am even beginning to
bring school plants to my studio. I love it!
