I was Born in the Bronx and raised in Valley Stream on Long Island NY.
I was fortunate to have Manhattan at my doorstep and experienced a vast array of art and theatre thanks to parents who had a passion for the arts. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an artist.
I received a BFA in Scenography from SUNY New Paltz (Scenic, Lighting & Costume Design), and.... get ready for it........married my college professor, David George. Thirty years later we have two daughters, a menagerie of pets, and have worked continually as business & creative partners along the entire journey!
We created and ran George & Goldberg Design Associates for 18 years which was a custom scenic design, engineering and manufacturing company for the entertainment industry. Our clients ranged from The Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, and Neil Diamond to Honda, the Olympics, Super Bowl half time shows, Olympic ceremonies, Boeing and Disney world wide.
A number of years ago we moved on from G&G to focus on design, consulting and theatre producing via our company Millrock Productions, LLC, www.Millrock.biz which resulted in, among other projects, designing and co-producing the national tour of I Love Lucy® Live on Stage. www.ILoveLucyLive.com
In 2019 we shifted our lives once again, procured a general contractors license and have been specializing in restorations of historic structures in the southern California area.
My "fine" art has taken many twists and turns from acrylic painting and photography to my recent one-year foray into weaving baskets from garden hoses, www.Just-Supphose.com
