I completed a BFA in Painting in 1979 from Boston University, and an MFA in Painting with Honors in 1983 from American University in Washington, DC, and then moved to New York. I rented a studio and began to exhibit my work-imaginary landscapes-in: Brooklyn '85, Brooklyn Museum, NY, 1985; and Berkshire Art Association Annual Juried Show, Berkshire Museum, MA, 1987; among other venues. I was awarded a grant from the Penny McCall Foundation in 1989; and a place in the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, 1992-1993. During this time, I was awarded residencies at MacDowell in 1985, 1987 and later again in 1994.
I began to experiment with painting on flat canvas "shapes" and exhibited this work in Transient Decor, Roger Smith Hotel, NY, 1993; and continued to experiment with painting on 3-dimensional canvas "shapes" and exhibited this work in: Huma Bhaba, Aleya Saad, Randy Wray, Lauren Wittels Gallery, NY, 1994; and in In Three Dimensions: Women Sculptors of the '90s; Part I: Issues of Gender, Snug Harbor Cultural Center, NY, 1995, among other venues.
In the early 90s, I began to produce garments from tulle fabric. I exhibited this new work in A la Mode, Sauce Gallery, Williamsburg, 1996, featuring three "sculptures" modeled on a runway. In the mid 90s, began a short film, using an 8mm movie camera, which took the model, on a set of "errands" in full costume.
In the late 90s, I transitioned to photography and enrolled in a series of darkroom classes at ICP to learn how to develop and print my own work. In early 2012, I began a figurative series in the studio, with a model, which includes designing the costumes, set, and props. In 2014, I completed a major body of work, "Pageant Play", and self-published "Pageant Play," selected for "INFOCUS Photobooks: Juried Exhibition of Self-Published Photobooks", Phoenix Art Museum, AZ, 2014; and most recently completed a new series, "A very costly masque prepared but not shown" among others, and I am currently at work on "No More Tears, Pierrot".
