B.1956

Artist Statement:

   I have been making art for the past 25 years. Trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, for 4 years, I initially worked in painting and printmaking.  At the Academy, I developed monoprints incorporating lessons I learned through painting; thus allowing the prints to have the saturated color of painting.

   For the past 20 years I have lived in upstate New York on 85 wooded acres surrounded by nature with my husband, son, two parrots, and two dogs. Animals are a large part of my life. In addition to a taxidermy collection in my own studio, I have spent hours drawing at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and various natural history museums. Drawing is crucial in the development of art – observing the world and developing a dialogue with it through art.

   I am fortunate to have a studio large enough to work in the multi-medias of printmaking, painting, and sculpture; including two large presses and a bronze foundry. I began working in sculpture about three years ago. After drawing from life on a regular basis (and experiencing the roundness of living) my hand wanted to take a turn off the 2-dimensional world of painting into three dimensions of clay sculpture. I cast the clay into bronze myself, taking the process through every step of foundry – mold making, wax, ceramic shell, pouring the bronze, welding and patina.

   Before art school, I received a Masters in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. Nine years ago I began exhibiting my art and volunteer teaching in maximum-security prisons. In addition to teaching in-prison, I volunteer as the program director for the Prisoner Express, a through-the-mail distant learning program for prisoners. In this voluntary capacity, I develop art curriculums for 4000 prisoners across the United States representing every state and about 700 prisons.
