Statement

I was raised in rural northeastern Pennsylvania, which I happily left, to attend college at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I received a BFA in Fine Arts in 1992, having majored in Fine Arts – Printmaking and minored in the History of Art. Feeling a bit jaded and world-weary with New York City, I relocated to Southern Californi. I continued drawing, painting, and photographing. My “real job” eventually brought me to Chicago, where I stopped creating artwork and started creating a family. I have lived in Northwest Indiana for nearly a dozen years with my husband and two sons.

Two years ago I began creating artwork again, which I fully credit with keeping me almost sane. My artwork often revolves around memories, both good and bad. Most recently, my paintings are about trying to find a happy place to be in mentally, in relation to being a caregiver for a disabled child. To this end, my figurative abstract pieces are beginning to take on a landscape feel. My most recent painting series is titled Safety, with a subseries America.
