As a photographer, film-maker, author, and practicing psychoanalyst, I feel the urgency for artistic recognition of the ruptures in our society and attempts towards repair.

The Afterlife of Dolls, a solo photographic and sound installation at the Montclair Art Museum, was a response to my work at Ground Zero. This project was featured on PBS’ State of the Arts and received both a Golden Bell and Gradiva Award. I collaborated in the formation of
a veterans’ art initiative called Frontline Arts and directed and produced two award-winning documentaries – Leave No Soldier and The Mourning After – about post-traumatic stress in the veterans’ community.

My work has been juried into numerous group exhibitions from New York City to Los Angeles. My photographs have been commissioned for book covers and are in private and museum collections.

Recently, I was invited to represent New Jersey’s women artists in a public art project
titled Her Flag (www.herflag.com). My installation, By Our Own Hand, in collaboration with Frontline Arts, will be exhibited at the Montclair Art Museum in fall 2020.
