I grew up in Stratford, CT and spent much time on the shores of Long Island Sound, as well as roaming all over the forests, mountains, and rolling hills of New England. Even as a child, I’ve always loved landscapes. Once I tune into their presences, something shifts inside of me.
After receiving my BA at Vassar College, where I studied art, I attended courses at the Smithsonian Institution, and later in the full-time program at the Corcoran School of Art, where I studied with William Christenberry. Some other influences have been Helen Frankenthaler, Henri Matisse, and Anselm Kiefer. My work has been exhibited in galleries in Washington DC, Baltimore, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, Laguna Beach, CA, New Haven, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago, as well as in various online platforms: Grey Cube gallery, Light, Space & Time gallery, Art Room gallery. I was a member of P St. Paperworks, a women’s collective, and a charter member of ACE Exhibits—both in DC —and have taught visual arts at the University of MD, Baltimore County for 16 years.
My drawings, paintings, and collages have appeared in The Washington Review, American Film magazine, Américas magazine, and on the covers of books and records published by Southern Illinois University Press, Story Line Press, The Figures Press, Hanging Loose, Coffee House Press, and Green Linnet Music, among others.
My book LANG was printed by Primary Writing Press in 2019. Two works of mine were published on the Best American Poetry website in 2022.
