About me:

In fulfilling a long-standing dream, at age 56, I resigned my position in health care to attend the Maine College of Art, Portland Maine. In the summer of my junior year I received a fellowship to study in Florence, Italy. In 2006 I was accepted into the Masters Program at RIT and graduated magna cum laude with an MFA in Sculpture and Painting. We coverted our garage into a studio and I am
making as much art as I possibly can.

Exhibit change by:

I exhibit change by functioning as a role model for other women, as it is possible in ones later years to change directions and succeed . I think my work also expresses
women's desire for community, identity, and purpose.

I'm passionate about:

Building community, and actively participating in its rituals and customs.

From Exhibiting You:

As a female passing through the seasons of my life, I have an opportunity in my art to express my political, spiritual and cultural legacies in autobiographical form. For most of my life, I have been a wanderer within my own body and have searched endlessly for a map that tells me where I live.
