Over the past six years, I have spoken at libraries, museums and synagogues in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey on a variety of art topics, including; How Picasso survived during the war years, how artists througout history have coped with censorship, the unique story of Joseph Cornell, how photography offered greater opportunity for women, and why landscape painting is still revelant, to name a few. I have been featured as a regular guest speaker at the New City, Chappaqua and New Canaan Libraries.

As we move into the new year, I will continue to work with libraries and organizations on live zoom events.

Currently, I am working on putting together my speaking schedule for the year so please contact me to save a date for 2021.

thank you,
