My life’s work has taken me to points far west of New England — from Pullman, Washington to Boulder, Colorado and finally, to Mesa, Arizona, where I currently make my home. I received my BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and my MFA from the University of Colorado. I taught Fine Arts at the University of Colorado for twenty years and at Regis University in Denver, Colorado for three. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the country, including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The National Women’s Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The Aspen Arts Foundation, The Boulder Art Center and the Mesa Arts Center. I have received grants and fellowships from the Boulder Arts Commission and the Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs. I have published over fifty illustrations for newspapers and magazines.
My work is a visual interpretation of feelings rather than realistic representation. With roots based in Surrealism, the element of interconnecting life permeates all of the imagery. I have traveled several paths in my artistic exploration from the figurative and narrative to landscape imagery. Currently I am working on a series of pastels and paintings, exploring the beauty of light, color and form of the Arizona desert.
