The printmaking processes of monotype and intaglio have allowed me to represent a variety of themes and subjects that range from the personal and autobiographical to the symbolic and mythological. My prints echo my artistic process of drawing and painting. I add layers of shape, color and pattern, and then manipulate, exaggerate, and animate marks. My prints are also about my personal process of remembrance: stepping back, taking stock, reminiscing, moving forward.
I have exhibited paintings in oil, acrylic and pastel and intaglio and monotype prints in numerous galleries in the Pittsburgh region as well as in statewide and national juried exhibitions. Most recently my paintings were included in the 2014 Pittsburgh Biennial at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. I am a member of and have exhibited with Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Print Group, Group A and Pittsburgh Society of Artists. I have also taught a variety of painting and drawing classes to adults at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and through other educational and community venues. I received a Master in Arts in Teaching (1976) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1975), both from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence.
