My nana was a quilter and my first artistic inspiration. The tiny pieces of fabric that once scattered her floors now fill my studio and canvas. I am in love with these fabrics, their sentiment and aesthetic. I am a figurative painter, drawn by the shape of the person and their life. My portraits are imprints of what was, a reflection on impermanence, and an appreciation for the beauty of a life well-lived. My paintings are composed with reproduction quilting fabrics; their patterns originate from the colonial period up to the 1930’s. Referencing the art and love and domesticity of our grandmother’s, I adorn and glorify, heal and harbor and look with longing for all we have yet to achieve.
I was born and raised in Western Ma. Currently, I teach in Springfield, reside with my teens and pets in Holyoke, and keep a studio in Northampton.
I have attended studio and Academic courses at Georgetown, Boston College, School of the Museum of FIne Arts, Tufts University, Harvard College, University of Minnesota and UMASS Amherst.
