STATEMENT

I am interested in architectural structures, the potency of found material, and the interplay between reduced and complex visual vocabularies.

Building and repair are unifying metaphors in works that range from intensively-labored collages to built constructions that minimally disturb the integrity of the found object.

 

BIOGRAPHY

After receiving my BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I spent several years in Barcelona, Spain, painting and teaching English. I returned to the U.S. in 1991 and lived mostly in the Boston area before moving to Santa Cruz in 2002. My work has been exhibited in numerous local and national invitational and juried shows. In recent years I have had the privilege of completing residences at the Vermont Studio Center (2011), Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts (2013, 2015), the Ragdale Foundation (2014), the Hambidge Center (2015), Grand Marais Art Colony and Jentel Artist Residency (2016), and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (2017).
