I began applying paints and dyes to my prints while studying photography at Massachusetts College of Art and eventually painting became my primary form of expression.

My paintings, photographs, and mixed media projects derive inspiration from techniques by the abstract expressionist Hans Hofmann and I’ve studied with Hofmann’s students in Provincetown. My oil paintings deal with spatial relationships and with our intimate (and innate) responses to color and line and form. My art is about re-visions and layers and absences.

I have exhibited locally at the Mills Gallery, the Stebbins Gallery, the Harriet Tubman House, the Art Institute, the Revolving Museum, and in Provincetown at Gallery 153, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and numerous juried shows in New England. My work has appeared in publications including The Sun, South End News, and as the frontispiece of a book on writings about Vietnam. I’ve worked as a gallery assistant at Boston’s Photographic Resource Center and The New Art Center.

I’m currently painting an abstract series inspired by the Peaked Hill dune shacks on the backshore of Cape Cod.
