Statement

I've always been interested in the arts. When I was a child, I wanted it to be my life's work. I spent hours playing music and drawing with my siblings. There were musicians and painters in my family, and I wanted to be like them. As an adult, I pursued theatre and music, but lacked the confidence to succeed on stage. I turned to another interest, social and community work. I worked with battered women and later with the homeless. I was dedicated to my work, but felt the strong call of my creative talents.

In 1998, I had the chance to live in Cortona, Italy for six months, with my husband Marty Sereno, a professor of neuroscience. During that time, I taught myself to paint. I paid close attention to the remarkable art all around me. Back in our apartment, I experimented with color and form. By the end of our stay, a painting style of my own had emerged.

My artwork is now a part of many private and public collections in the U.S. and elsewhere. We currently live in London, England, where I work with the homeless to create art, and continue to create my own artwork, from my home studio
