I studied visual art, postmodern dance and somatics at Hampshire College. I work in painting, drawing, printmaking, art jewelry, ivory free scrimshaw, poetry, and movement. For ten years my work focused on landscape. In 1999, while attending massage therapy school, my focus shifted to figure. I began a series of self portraits inspired by the alphabet which became the 18 year project "In My Own Language". In 2015, following my third round of cancer treatment, I relocated to California to study with Anna and Daria Halprin. I offer expressive arts and somatic education and continue working on journal pages for "Finding The Ocean" a 365 piece series of found object jewelry created 2012-13. I returned to Key West in 2022 and can occasionally be found vending outside Hemingway's House.
