Her award-winning work has been exhibited internationally and has been featured in publications in the USA, the Netherlands, England, South Korea and Italy.   She was born on December 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy and no doubt influenced her character.  She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
