I work primarily in mixed media, utilizing elements of collage, drawing, painting and photography. I am drawn to material nearing obsolescence, former emblems of our rapidly changing culture. I like the aged quality of paper. One can look at my work and recognize telltale words from derailed personal journals, as well as autobiographical ephemera, such as dated travel itineraries and entertainment ticket stubs. The viewer is guided through the assembled material by its internal logic, which frequently evokes circuitry or knotted and entwined geometrics — choked and claustrophobic spaces on the verge of imploding.

As a Traveling Scholar from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, I’ve exhibited my work at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Other museums in New England in which I’ve exhibited include the Fitchburg Art Museum, and the Danforth Art Museum at Framingham State University. My work is in the permanent collection of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art in New York City. I’ve exhibited extensively in galleries in Boston, including the Krakow Witkin Gallery, Hallspace, and the Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts.
