NJN State of the Arts, produced a video about my work as an artist, entitled "The Artist and Environmentalist"in 2012. The Institute for Woman's Leadership produced a documentary about my career in 2010. I am the recipient of the NJ Audubon Richard Kane Conservation Award, the NJ State Council on the Arts Individual Fellowship in works on Paper, the Weir Farm Visiting Artist Grant, an I-Park Environmental Artist Residency, a Puffin Foundation Grant and the Martha and Merrit DeJong Artist IN Residence at the Evansville Museum.
I want to create and exhibit skillful artwork rooted in drawing from observation that calls attention to the environmental emergencies we have caused in the suburbs. I will speak for the birds, bees, and pollinators that have lost their habitat due to our reckless behavior. The expressive act of drawing has the power to reawaken our felt sense, and connect us to the very essence of the nature. I want to educate and inspire my audience to see and feel the magic of the ordinary world, and start a conversation about being part of something larger than us.
