I grew up in New York City and have lived in Brunswick, Maine most of my life.  For almost thirty years I have been an elementary classroom teacher in the public schools and at the same time have continued with my artwork.  I have a B.A. from Antioch College and an M.A. from the University of Southern Maine.

My works are woodblock prints. In style, they are representational with interpretation.  They show my interests and surroundings, often with nature themes, some include animals some people.  As for art training, I am self-taught.  Growing up in New York City visiting art museums and exhibits were a normal part of my education, and I was always drawing and painting.  Further art awareness continued when I, with my husband and children lived in Denmark and later my husband and I lived in Munich and Paris.  I am most influenced by the French impressionists and German expressionists, including Norwegian Edvard Munch.  Many have asked, ‘why work in wood, isn’t it a lot of work and slow?’  That’s true, but I like the strong look of a woodblock  print.

I have exhibited in: Copenhagen, Denmark, Washington D.C.; Gallery-by- the-Sea, Port Clyde, Maine at Galeyrie, Falmouth, Maine and in 2006 had a one man show at Gallery Framing in Brunswick, Maine and more recently exhibited four prints there.  Over the past three years my prints were in a group show at the Prouts Neck Country Club.  Two of my prints appeared in the Great TV Auction, 2007, 2008.  In 2009 I had a one man exhibit at MAE’S CAFÉ in Bath, Maine. My block-prints were published in International Graphic magazine, in two of Professor Daniel Levine’s (my husband) books: Jane Addams and the Liberal Tradition and  Poverty and Society.  Some of my illustrations appear in Dr. Karen Levine’s (my daughter) book, Replays: Using Play to Enhance Emotional and Behavioral Development for Children with Autism and other Related Conditions.
