With a master’s degree in art history and museum studies, I am passionate about the arts and have written extensively about them for institutions such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the U.S. Postal Service and the University of Virginia. My arts-related articles also have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, The Denver Post and Newcity arts magazine.
