About Me

My narrative paintings spring from a love for the overgrown fields, woods, wetlands and lakes of the Adirondacks where I grew up hiking and exploring. Currently I have an off- the -grid cabin on the edge of a field in the North Country. I create painted narratives that reflect my concern with climate change in both the landscape and native populations of birds and amphibians. 

I  earned a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design, an AAS in Textiles from Rochester Institute of Technology, and studied painting at Marylhurst University in Portland, Oregon.

I have exhibited my work in numerous group and solo shows including Cheryl McGinnis Gallery ( New York, NY); Stone Ridge Center for the Arts (Stone Ridge, NY);  Jane Street Gallery (Saugerties, NY); Studio 89, (Highland NY); Brick Gallery, (Catskill NY); Kingston Museum of Contemporary Art, (Kingston, NY); Bard College, (Annandale on Hudson, NY).

 Residencies have included Vermont Studio Center, Johnson Vermont, Jentel in Sheridan, Wyoming and the Platte Clove A.I.R. in Arkville, New York. 

An extensive career in the fashion industry primarily as an apparel designer at Nike in Portland, Oregon was followed by creating and directing a fashion design degree program at SUNY Ulster Community College.
