A native of tiny Whitefish, Montana—but a gypsy by nature—after receiving my MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, I have lived many places making art. I’m truly happiest as a voyager. I am an award-winning photographer having received—The National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, CAVA Prize, An Aaron Siskind Foundation fellowship, a Ludwig Vogelstein fellowship, A CT Commission on the Arts fellowship, a one-year sponsored Residency at Cite Internationale de Paris, France, a nine-month sponsored residency in Vienna, and I've just been chosen for a residency at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin when travel permits—and many other awards, both in the U.S., and Europe. I have exhibited and am collected internationally. My theme is always lovers, the emotional or psychological intimate space between the two. I look at the way things transpired from each one's perspective. We, none of us, ever see things exactly the same way. The abstractions in my compositions are my first love.
