Hello, there! I have been so busy lately with working, traveling, and life in general. In lieu of posting photos of new work, which will be coming soon, I am posting some photos of my sketchbooks. I have just started to document them, as there is now close to a decades’ worth of doodles! The sketchbooks are important to me, I almost always have one on me. I keep ideas, sketches, memories, quotes that speak to me, ticket stubs, scraps of paper and fabric, photos…anything and everything. I hope you enjoy them!

It’s 2014 and things are going swell. I’m thrilled to be featured on the cover of the Buffalo Spree Magazine this month! I’m also excited to have an exhibition opening in Lake George, NY at the Courthouse Gallery with painter Yari Ostovany .




I’ve begun a new chapter in my life. I now live in Richmond, VA and am working towards earning an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Additionally, I’ve been in the Art in Craft Media 2013 exhibition at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, and held a solo exhibition at SUNY Geneseo’s Kinetic Gallery, and the Think Small exhibition at Artspace in Richmond.

Of Late

A very nice review in the Gusto section of the Buffalo News, about a recent show, Bounty, at Indigo Art. It was quite an honor to be in a show with so many respected artists.





Recently, as a participant in the Burchfield Penney’s Living Artist Legacy Program, I was interviewed by the Art Center and this is a link to said interview and my bio page on the Art Center’s website.




The wonderful Platte Clove Artist Residency that I was so lucky to be a part of this fall…and a sneak preview of some of the work I did there focusing on outdoor installations.
