I am a conceptual artist, working in acrylics, collage, sculpture, photography and most recently encaustics.
After graduating college, I worked in journalism and began taking painting classes with Churchill Davenport at the Silvermine School of Art. Later I studied at the Rowayton Arts Center and the Darien Arts Center and for the past four years took Conceptual Art classes with Constance Kiermaier, 2016 recipient of the Silvermine Living Art Award.
Initially, I painted en plein air in acrylic and pastel as a member of the Holly Pond Painters in Darien. We created four permanent murals in the Darien Nature Center’s classrooms.
Four years ago I began to take my art in an abstract direction. My work is very personal, relating to nature, people, places and things I know intimately. What inspires me is the story behind the work. Many of my pieces are inspired by family members, heirlooms, poetry, my past.
My sculpture, painting, mixed media and photography have won awards at the Rowayton Arts Center and Darien Art Show. An exhibiting member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists, I have been accepted into juried shows there as well juried shows at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, the Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan and through the Stamford Art Association at the Ferguson Library in Stamford. My pieces have also been exhibited at the Darien Library, the UConn Stamford branch, SoundWaters of Stamford, the Darien Nature Center, the Darien Historical Society, Atria in Darien, Brendan’s 101 in Rowayton and the Community Cooperative Nursery School show in Rowayton. Many pieces hang in homes up and down the East Coast.
