about

My interest in photography began as a high school student in Cleveland, Ohio. I continued my studies in the medium at Fordham University in New York City. After being a social worker for several years I enrolled in the MFA program at Yale University's School of Art. My work has been exhibited in many venues in the US as well as internationally in Ireland, Japan, and China. I've received awards and grants from The Puffin Foundation, The English Speaking Union, the city of New Haven, and a multi-media fellowship from The Rotunda Gallery and Brooklyn Cable Access TV. Recent residencies at renowned art colonies, including Skaftfell in Iceland and in the US, The Djerassi Foundation and The Millay Colony, have provided me with inspirational environments in which to pursue her work in the landscape. My photographs are in The Margulies Warehouse Collection in Miami, The Johnson & Johnson Corporate Art Collection, and numerous private collections in the US and abroad.
