 From an early age, I was encouraged to express myself through music and art.  I was given formal music lessons and took art classes through the Brooklyn Museum of Art.  I chose a career in medicine but continued my study of drawing and painting, even sketching from cadavers in anatomy lab.  As an adult, I've had the good fortune to take workshops with masters of our time, inspired by their teaching while honing my skills.  There is still so much to learn - it is a wonderful pursuit!
