Over the years, the content of my work has included images associated with places that are special to me, sociopolitical issues, as well as the expressive nature of space, texture, and color. I am especially drawn to creating images relating to the shoreline, and the life forms nearby.

Several years ago I began a series titled “Contemplation.” I discovered how much I love working in the format of a circle within a square, and I have completed Contemplation, Series Six. I thoroughly enjoy the exploration of color and design within this format.

I studied printmaking at SMFA, Boston, most semesters from 2001 – 2011. Prior to 2001 I studied printmaking at Southern CT State University and Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, CT. I hold Bachelor and Masters Degrees from SCSU.

In addition to Full Tilt Print Studio, I am also a member of the Monotype Guild of New England, and served as its President from 2005 — 2008 and its Exhibition Chair from 2008 – 2011. I am a member of the New Haven Paint & Clay Club, in New Haven CT, the Hamden Art League, and the New Haven Arts Council.

My works are in public and private collections.
