I have been taking pictures since my first Black & White Darkroom class in Art School many decades ago. Currently, I make both inkjet and darkroom prints of my photographic images. One recent series, exhibited in January 2021 with The Wildroot Group, featured black & white inkjet prints taken on the streets of Manhattan. They […]

As an artist-in-residence back in April of 2019, I found myself feeling rather kindred to the tall magnolia tree stationed across the road from Main Street Arts. Everyday, I watched the tree from my studio window as it responded to the stubborn shift of winter to spring; transforming from some kind of desperate stick figure […]

I was an artist in residence at Main Street Arts during the summer of 2019. I stayed there from the beginning of July to the end of August. The resident for August couldn’t make it and Brad and Sarah offered for me to stay. I was coming out of painting in my bedroom and drawing […]

In October of 2019 I was an artist in residence at Main Street Arts. This was an exciting and meaningful residency for me not only because it was in such an awesome gallery, but because I grew up in Clifton Springs and have too many fond memories of the place including going to the very […]

I currently live in Geneva NY, and was born and raised in the surrounding area. Growing up I always had a huge interest in art of all kinds, and I’m pretty sure from a young age I would tell people I wanted to be an artist when I grow up. It’s surreal sometimes to say […]

My studio work evolves, for me, over long periods of time in an experimental approach of accretion. My approach to making an […]

I live in the village of Newark, NY with my husband John and two cats Rudy and Fleur. My studio is nestled into a portion of our attic and it is where you’ll often find me lost in some sort of creative process with my feline studio assistants. Long story short, art has always been […]

In 2018 I was challenged by a mentor of mine, to not just call myself a visual artist, but  ponder on what type of artist I actually am. I began looking at both my past and more recent works collectively, and the theme of my work was and has consistently been liberty! Based upon that […]

Drawing is a useful tool for generating new work, but drawing has limits when the subject of the work is an elusive concept. I enjoy drawing and painting representational subjects, but feel challenged to create works that embody a sense of being alive. Years of chasing this idea has taken me through iterations of art-making […]

Constellations

Constellations at Main Street Arts, January 16–February 26, 2021

As we enter the final week of the three person exhibition, Constellations I find myself revisiting the work by Mizin Shin, Sara Baker Michalak, and Bill Santelli. Even though I’m the one who invited these artists to be in this exhibition, I am continually amazed at the overlap between each of them. Some of more […]
