Beginning in 1976, four years of studies at Montserrat School of Visual Art (now Montserrat College of Art), Beverly, MA, brought me some commendations in painting and photography. In my senior year, I began to teach photography and serve as school photographer in a nearby private school. My life changed a lot after that. Painting skills were shelved, but photography continued. Many years later, I am taking my painting skills off the shelf and hope to rediscover my art school days.
