I am definitely a materials junkie. Much of my work utilizes grid formations and circular motifs, relying both on organic forms and man-made structures for inspiration. I find intermingling these components an endless source of interest and opportunity for discovery, especially when viewed through a lens of diverse media. My work is often created through abstraction; duplicating is of no interest to me, but grasping the guts of an idea sparks my curiosity, directing my efforts.
Born in Providence, Rhode Island, I moved through RI public schools, graduating with honors from Hope High School. I went on to earn a BFA in Textiles from RISD and later, an MFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art, in Sculpture/Studio Art. While some time is spent promoting the efforts of artists through curatorial work, I have maintained a consistent exhibition schedule over the years, exhibiting in museums and galleries locally, across the country and internationally. I currently live in Foster, RI.
