Statement

I could draw before I could talk. My kindergarten teacher called my parents and said, “Have you seen this child draw?"

I graduated from the Lamar Dodd School of Art from the University of Georgia and moved to New York City in 1981. When canvases of my Information Paintings from the 80s filled with oil-painted squares of pixels, I realized digital media was the way to go. I enrolled in some of the earliest courses in digital art at The School of Visual Arts in 1984. Working as an Art Director at The Wall Street Journal Online and other corporations at the World Trade Center allowed me to continue exploring the realm of digital media. Meanwhile I participated in some early international exhibitions of digital art and my work was acquired by corporate collections (AT&T, Pfizer).

After 9/11, a period of deep spiritual introspection led me to study religious iconography and apply it to the new media landscape. This resulted in DIMONscapes®, an animated digital painting that combines infinitesimal layers of imagery and words. One of these works, PALE MALE: A Pilgrimage, has recently been acquired by the 9/11 Memorial Museum for their permanent collection, and is also in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Artifacts II is my latest series of black and white digital drawings of everyday utilitarian objects.

A southerner who calls New York home since 1981, my husband and I divide our time between Manhattan and Shelter Island.
