Janel Halpern grew up in Brooklyn, New York. A lifelong lover of art, she began her studies at the Brooklyn Museum Art School, where she studied oil painting. Passionate about shaping the minds of the next generation, she pursued a career as an English teacher at high schools and junior colleges in New York City. In addition to her work as a teacher, Halpern worked as a full-time writer, lending her talents to many non-profit organizations, including Family Health International's AIDSCAP Project and Montefiore Medical Center. She wrote a weekly column for the Mamaroneck (NY) Daily Times. Her work has been published in Redbook, the New York Times, Westchester Magazine, and Chatelaine, among other publications. Since retiring from her teaching and full-time writing careers, Halpern pursues freelance projects, focusing on work that combines her passions for art, New York City, and social change. She also spends time painting in the studio at the Art Students League of New York. Halpern received her master of arts from New York University. She lives in Manhattan with her husband but makes frequent excursions to different boroughs in search of new museums, galleries, and shows.
