Made from advertising posters, billboards, and debris collected from locations including Berlin, San Francisco, and Mexico City, these recent collages echo the surfaces and textures encountered in the urban landscape.
After receiving my BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I spent several years in Barcelona, Spain, painting and teaching English. I returned to the U.S. in 1991 and lived mostly in the Boston area before moving to Santa Cruz in 2002. My work has been exhibited in numerous local and national invitational and juried shows. In recent years I have had the privilege of completing residences at the Vermont Studio Center (2011), Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts (2013, 2015), the Ragdale Foundation (2014), and the Hambidge Center (2015). This fall I will spend a month at Jentel Artist Residency in Banner, Wyoming.
