About This Artwork

This is one of a series of sculptures I made from styrofoam packing box liners.  Once the product it was protecting is removed, the styrofoam form is mysterious, and part of our contemporary ecological nightmare.  These forms multiply and are fast becoming our unnatural “rocks”.  I wondered what would happen if nature tried to reclaim them as rocks.  They represent a sort of hybrid manmade-natural object.  Is the line between natural and manmade becoming a blur?  What is real?  I include a small UV flashlight with this sculpture to light up the glowing paints, especially at night.

Artist Info

Untitled design (3)

My earliest memory is of sitting on the floor drawing.  I discovered the immense power of art when I was quite young;  I drew a red horse.  My older sister insisted that “you can’t draw a red horse because horses aren’t red”, but since I had already drawn it, I realized that you CAN create anything you want in art.

I attended Illinois State University for my bachelor's and master's degrees, then moved to New York City, where I exhibited for 8 years in many underground exhibitions.  I operated a studio/gallery in Frenchtown, NJ for several years and have lived and worked in Ewing, NJ since closing that in 1990.  I have widely exhibited in solo, juried, and invitational exhibitions in the tri-state area including The Ellarslie Museum, The Hunterdon Art Museum, The Gallery at MCCC, The Monmouth Museum, The Freyberger Gallery at Penn State, and Rider University Art Gallery.

I am a member of The Princeton Artists Alliance, Trenton Artists Workshop, Ewing Arts, New Hope Arts, and ROOTS Artist Alliance as well as DVP/US1 Poets.

I have been a featured speaker at the Monroe Art Series and the Hopewell Arts Council’s Arts Connect series.  One of my sculptures will appear on the cover of the next COOL WOMEN POETS ANTHOLOGY.  I often write poems which accompany my visual artwork, and this year’s DVP/US1 Worksheets anthology includes one of my poems.  I have 3 artworks in the collection of Rider University.  I currently work from a renovated garage studio at my home.

My work is created in mixed media and is inspired by nature, language, and earth literacy.
