Occupation Artist/translator
Location Essex, CT, United States
Introduction Biography: I attended Colorado University Extension in Denver, and later moved to Florence, Italy where I studied art and Italian at L’Università Per Gli Stranieri. To finance my education my job résumé was as colorful as the Renaissance city itself. I shivered as an artist’s model and sang the blues in catacomb nightclubs. I worked as an interpreter/translator for a textile company and hawked leather goods to tourists. Back on US soil, the colors on my résumé remained vibrant. In addition to Italian teacher at Berlitz School of Languages and a two-year stint as a Playboy Bunny, I added hairdresser/salon owner, to my palette. Classes in writing, cartooning, and art filled whatever free hours remained. In 1996 I moved to Hawaii, where, for the following ten years, I devoted myself to painting and writing. Now, a resident of Connecticut, I divide my time between painting, writing, and Italian poetry translations. My art can be viewed at:
