After graduating from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston (1981), I studied at the New England School of Art and Design, also in Boston, and created designs for a number of clients. During this time, I continued to paint, and began exhibiting my work in 1998. Since focusing all my attention on fine art, I have had many national and international solo and group shows.

I am represented by Trevisan International Art in Ferrara, Italy. In addition to membership in the National Association of Women Artists, I am also a member of the American Society of Contemporary Artists and the National Women’s Caucus for Art. My poetry has been published in numerous magazines and literary journals.

The inspiration for my abstractions is feminine imagery, which to me expresses strength and vulnerability, power, mystery, and creative potential. This imagery is everywhere, and is often overlooked. People can run their eyes not only over the surface of my work, but beyond it through
the openings in the canvas, and inside and over its hills and valleys. I am drawn to nature and its visual aspects. There is so much of the feminine in nature, I am often overwhelmed by the ideas I derive from it.
Everywhere I look, I see potential paintings; nearly everything I see in nature pushes me explore more and more avenues in my work.
