I was raised in Philadelphia, Pa, and went to 3 art schools there: The Pennsylvania Academy of Art, The Philadelphia College of Art, and the Tyler School of Art. Preceding these schools attended the University of the Americas in Mexico City, Mexico. I received a BFA from Tyler. While living in Philadelphia I had several one-woman shows at Eyes Gallery, Owen Patrick Gallery, and Third Street Gallery. I was accepted in juried shows as far away as Texas and North Dakota. In 2005 I moved permanently to Truro, Ma to live with my husband. In 2005 I had a one-woman show at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vt. Following that I had 2 one-woman shows, in 2011 and 2012 at the Blue Gallery in Provincetown, Then in 2016, my painting was awarded best in a show at the Provincetown Art Association. I have had 2 one-woman shows, in 2017 and 2020 at the Five Point Gallery in Torrington, Ct. I received a $25,000 grant from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation in 2017. I show regularly locally.
Everything I see is not what it appears to be and has been at the core of all my work as far back as I can remember. In the past decade, all the work that has gone before has led to the work I am creating now. I have finally been able to use accumulated skills of many years to express complexities inherent in daily life through these paintings of multiple figures. I have managed to pull together new and exciting ways to elucidate this fundamental delusion we all live with. However much these figures appear to be alone they cannot exist within the painting without the others.
