I’m in an encore, new performance of my life emerging as an influential artist, inspired by my world travels, as an accomplished ballet dancer, as a scientist and cancer survivor (more than once), and a life-long public school educator with five teaching certificates.
As the daughter of Max Kaplan, the owner of the famous Max’s Art Supplies in Westport, CT, I spent many years around the table with artists, marveling at their techniques and styles. But, I was encouraged to become an educator, not an artist.
My journey is unfolding with training at the Silvermine School of Art and direction from Dmitri Wright. I have shown at Silvermine, The Fairfield Public Library and the Maritime Garage Museum in Norwalk, CT. I work in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media. My work is modern, geometric, scientific and abstract. When I’m not creating, I can be found at the beach and rescuing dogs.
