D e b o r a h  K a t z


I am a native Long Islander, and reside and work on Long Island.  After completing my studies at  SUNY Stony Brook, I worked in New York City Theater.  Although I consider myself a self-taught artist, I’ve studied with Eleanor Dragonette, Carl Molno, Betty Holliday, and Stan Brodsky over the past 35 years. Completed workshops with Craig Taylor, Honor Mack, Deborah Zlotsky, and Alfredo Gisholt at MassArt.
PRESENTLY, I am the curator at the Alfred Van Loen Gallery, SHPL for the last 16 years.
Worked as Stan Brodsky's assistant 2010 -2013
