My installations provide the freedom to express myself politically and socially. The various media I employ seem to transcend cultural and linguistic barriers.

After graduating from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston (1981), I studied at the New England School of Art and Design, also in Boston, and created designs for a number of companies. During this time, I continued to paint, and began exhibiting my work in 1998. Focusing all my attention on fine art has allowed me to live art every waking—and often dreaming—moment.

I have been an activist throughout my life, lobbying and speaking publicly about women's issues and raising awareness of the particular problems of rape/incest victims.

In addition to membership in the National Association of Women Artists (U.S.), I am also a member of the American Society of Contemporary Artists and the International Women's Caucus for Art. My poetry has been published in numerous magazines and literary journals. Read Less
