About my work
The works on this website represent my studio practice of the past 30 years.
The still-life works were created while I was a graduate student at the University of Iowa in the 1980’s and while a fellow with the Glassell School of Art ‘s Museum of Fine Arts in Houston Texas.
The monotype prints and paintings on panel address primarily two themes. When I was first teaching, I worked on imagery about beauty and the feminine. These included hairstyles, diets, weight, body image, and observations on physical attractiveness. Later, when I became a mother, my worked shifted to issues of parenthood, domestic life, and the changing view of childhood.
My most recent pieces are the multi-frame paintings on canvas. These works continue to consider parenting issues both large and small.
I have been an art professor for the past 20 years. First at Earlham College, and now at Elon University. I have taught courses in drawing, painting, book arts, design, paper making, printmaking and Italian art and architecture in a variety of venues .
Some of my work is available for exhibition, presentation, or purchase.
