Born in Providence, Rhode Island, I moved through RI public schools, graduating with honors from Hope High School, and went on to earn a BFA in Textiles from the Rhode Island School of Design and later, an MFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art, in Sculpture/Studio Art. While some time has been spent promoting the efforts of other artists through curatorial work, I have maintained a consistent exhibition schedule over the years, showing in museums and galleries locally, nationally and internationally. I currently live in Foster, Rhode Island.


I am interested in exploring how different media can be used to interpret an exploration of natural and constructed elements. Much of my work utilizes grids and circular motifs, where I rely on observation of organic and man-made forms at a microscopic and also immediate scale for inspiration. I find intermingling these components an endless source of opportunity for discovery. My work is most often created through the lens of abstraction; duplicating is of no interest to me, but grasping the guts of elements and ideas sparks my curiosity, directing my efforts.
