Some Thoughts

I grew up in Philadelphia, studied piano at the the Philadelphia Musical Academy, physics at the University of Pennsylvania and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I spent hours drawing plaster casts, painting still lifes and models, learning anatomy from Robert Beverly Hale and wondering how to communicate my ideas through art. I have grown plants with black flowers from seed, knitted Aran sweaters for babies, quilted, raised two daughters and two husbands. And I still think about how to communicate anyone’s ideas through art.

I have watched how we respond to work in galleries and to each other; how we approach both with our own narratives, colored by our experiences and beliefs. My intention as an artist is a small part of the experience of looking at a work of art, and so my figures are meant to encourage speculation; the gestures are subtle and the expressions ambiguous. They are the beginning of a story.
