With space and rhythm as a starting place, I then investigate expansion, contraction, the finite, and the infinite. I discover a rhythm while I work, as color and shape, light and dark balance to create movement or stillness. Rather than describe a place or location, I try to convey a sensation of space. What it feels like to be in space or to be in a place or a body moving among spaces large and small. I choose paper for its texture and color depending on the effects I want to convey with pastel, pencil, erasers, ink, and paint in my drawings.
I grew up in New York City and studied Drawing at the San Francisco Art Institute. I hold a BA from Bennington College with a major in Painting and Dance. Since moving to the Hudson Valley, I have continued my studies in dance and abstract drawing. I am a gardener, a hiker, and a practitioner of Buddhist meditation. I have shown my work locally at KMOCA in Kingston, New York as well as The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, the Doghouse Gallery, BSP Gallery, Woodstock School of Art and other venues in the area.
