I recently relocated from Boston to southern New Hampshire where I opened an art studio, currently concentrating on monotypes using the gel printmaking process. My approach to printing uses movements and gestures as I apply vivid colors to the gel plate and builds layers of color and textures that resonate with each other. My prints are spontaneous expressions exhibiting emotions and spirt interconnected in a harmonious abstract world. A native of Maryland, I was educated at Kenyon college receiving a B.A. degree (1996, major in studio art). My senior project used liquid silver emulsions applied by hand, a process that informs my gel print making process. I received a M.A degree (2014) from Lesley University in Expressive Therapies. My art skills, developed over the years, were an essential element in the suite of Expressive Therapies as part of the M.A. program.
