My work is about those moments when light reveals what is beautiful about ordinary places and things. I am generally attracted to run-down buildings, simple objects, alleys glimpsed in passing, or the way light caresses moldings on an old house. My goal is to capture the feeling of a place and moment in time and communicate that through my work. My final composition is never a rendering of an exact scene but rather a refection of my connection to it. I’ll often remove or add objects to a composition in order to balance and complete the story I want to tell. Somehow, in the spaces between light and shadow, I see reflections of the people who inhabit or built the structures: a hint of the human condition. The presence of the individual is always there--even when absent.
My work has been exhibited at the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) Gallery in New York City, the DeCordova Museum (City Views, Landscape Seen and Imagined), the Whistler House Museum, the Danforth Museum, the Rose Art Museum, and is in many private and corporate collections. I am a past recipient of an Artist’s Fellowship from the Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities, now the Massachusetts Cultural Council. In 2017, I was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists.
