I am fascinated by space: physical, personal, psychological, and how physical, psychological and emotional interruptions pierce or glide through space (clouds, utility lines, trees, thoughts). Incorporating minimalism, colorfield and landscape into paintings and drawings, my work is meditative, creating a window to peer into or out of to contemplate presence.
I earned my BA and MFA in drawing and painting from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL. In addition to working in my studio, I teach Design, Drawing and Women in the Arts at the college level.
When not working in my studio or teaching, I often volunteer my time with Humane organizations. I also enjoy fine dining, gallery openings, and hanging out at home with my cat.
