I have decades of experience as an instructor, lecturer, and editor in the fields of art history and the visual arts. I have advanced degrees from two universities (University of Massachusetts, Amherst and Columbia University) and have taught a wide array of courses at institutions including Columbia University, Smith College, Hofstra New College, Connecticut College, Storrs. Courses taught include surveys of Western art from ancient to modern, Women in Art, Medieval art, Italian and Northern Renaissance and Baroque, history of printmaking, printmaking and propaganda, history of film. I have lectured widely at conferences including those of the College Art Association, Renaissance Society, Society for Emblem Studies, and as invited guest of art history programs including that of Princeton University.

For a decade I served as Senior Editor of BHA (Bibliography of the History of Art), the foremost reference source in the field, at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. I supervised an international staff providing comprehensive coverage of publications in art history, and readied thousands of records for online publication four times a year. I am eager at this stage of my career to return to what I enjoy doing most: working as an educator. I learned the art of instruction early. My parents were both professors and tutoring me in their respective fields was a primary avocational activity. I also have extensive experience working one-on-one as a special needs caregiver. I am very knowledgeable, am well prepared, and am friendly, patient, and flexible.
