Executive Director, Main Line Art Center

Nov. 9 brings the grand re-opening of the Main Line Art Center. Five months and $1.8 million went into the makeover, transforming the 100-year-old building with the addition of a second level and new studios.

Her favorite town: Haverford. It’s home to our creative home.

The last thing she ate: The quinoa salad at Zoës Kitchen in Bryn Mawr.

The last thing she bought: A kids’ crafting kit at Lucky Duck Toys in Haverford.

Her take on the recent renovations at MLAC: I was standing there the other day and I was almost in tears. It’s just awesome. We’re rolling out a new digital media studio and program. It’s the first time we’ll be offering a digital media program on-site, so it’s a really big deal for us. We’re also offering a lot of new classes this fall.

Why the Main Line is a great place to be an artist: People are well educated and interested in culture and arts. You have a built-in audience.

Her favorite hobby: Dancing is my second love after photography. It was actually my first love, but photography made me break up with dance. I did all kinds, especially ballet and modern.

Where she goes for date night: Dinner at Verdad followed by a movie at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

If she had 30 minutes to herself, she would: Lay down in the grass at Valley Forge National Historical Park. That’s my happy place. I’ve been going there since I was a kid, and I take my family there.

Best thing about the winter holidays on the Main Line: The Holiday Fine Craft Sale at the Main Line Art Center.
