I am daughter and sister to two accomplished visual artists, and have been surrounded by creative female figures who have taught me to embrace creative expression. A strong female voice tends to speak in much of my work.
I gravitate towards textiles, paper, stitching, paint, and materials found in nature. I find that tactile and dimensional materials work to make things appear one way from afar and another upon closer inspection. Outward appearances often are deceiving.
I am originally from Ohio, but have lived in the Finger Lakes Region of New York for the past 30 years. The history and beauty of this area never fails to inspire me.
