For 25 years, exhibiting in ceramics and encaustics and working in paper since 2006.

She works mainly with studio-pulped abaca paper as a skin over mixed media armatures. She’s interested in exploring the relationships between our human imagination and our environment: with the planet, the other creatures we share it with, the migration patterns that keep the ball rolling and the barriers we erect that threaten the essential balance. Individually, the sculptures are both endearing and scary, human and animal, gestural and mummified. These contradictions aren’t meant to be resolved. When exhibited together, at times along with audio and video elements, or in collaboration with other artists, the creatures form a Parade and are installed as if caught in a freeze frame as they move through the gallery and through time.

Throughout a long career, she’s exhibited locally and internationally, including in the Netherlands, Japan, and in her home state, the Shelburne and Sullivan Museums.

"I'm interested in exploring the idea of reciprical perception: if we look deeply into the heart of our planet we feel its response. What one takes from this experience - guilt, joy, separation, heartbreak, glory, a sense of this marvelous, biodiverse planet - it is up to the viewer."
