My earliest memories are of making art and wanting to be an artist. I studied Drawing, Painting, Printmaking and Textiles at Cal -State Fullerton, earning a B.F.A. I moved to San Francisco and worked as a cartographer and scientific illustrator for several of years, then returned to academia to earn an M.F.A. at Claremont Graduate University. While at Claremont I also studied Painting, Printmaking and also developed a deeper appreciation of Art History and Architecture. These studies, coupled with my time traveling and living in Europe, have given me much personal inspiration for my own work. My work continues to evolve, reflecting experiences and perceptions of my surroundings. I continue to search for new ways to express my thoughts visually, experimenting with various techniques and mediums. I strive to create work that engages the viewer with a starting point, and then continue on his or her own personal path of interpretation. I like working in layers, and find painting and printmaking are especially conducive to my process. I have recently been experimenting with water soluble graphite and drawing into the painted surface.
Hi, I am a painter and printmaker living in Northern California. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, I grew up in Los Angeles, moving to San Francisco in my early twenties. As an adult I had the good fortune to travel extensively and also live in Europe, yet I always yearned to return to the Bay Area. I now live in West Marin, and have maintained my studio at the ICB in Sausalito, CA for over 20 years, and cherish my connection with the many wonderful fellow artists who work there.
My artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the country, including the Renwick Gallery in the Smithsonian, Purdue University, Weber State College, Linhearst Gallery at USC, Artspace in Los Angeles and Cameraworks in San Francisco. My work has been included in the annual “Bay Area Women Artists” exhibit at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts every year for the past four years. In 2019 six of my monoprints were included in an exhibition in Florence, Italy.
