s working process integrates traditional painting methods with digital media. She did her undergraduate studies in Sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design, followed by graduate work at the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. For 24 years she taught courses in Design and Spatial Dynamics interchangeably within RISD's Division of Foundation Studies. With an interest in the assimilation of her working methods, she fractures and rearranges visual elements to discover new meaning. Her current paintings make use of visual metaphors.
She has been developing two seemingly exclusive series for a period of six years. These works are a combination of painting, photography, appropriated images, found objects and mixed media, which are further manipulated through digital media. Her series METAPHORS consists of fictional women that reference time past and time present, allowing her to explore the inner depths of her imagination. SPACES/PLACES exist in the liminal world, sparked by her many trips to Ireland and deepened through annual residencies there. Her multi-layered, multi-dimensional works from both series are best realized within the confines of her quiet studio in Newtonville, Massachusetts.
Her most recent exhibition was entitled Visual Metaphors: New Paintings, shown at the Bannister Gallery @ Rhode Island College in January 2014. The 18 paintings shown received positive reviews in both the Providence Journal (by Bill Van Siclen) and Art/New England (by Alicia Faxon), and prompted a feature article by Steven Briggs in the QUIET LUNCH Magazine, in the Spring of 2014.
