Thank you for visiting my website!
I work in oil, acrylic, graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, silverpoint, metal leaf, and powdered earth pigments. My assemblages are created with found, inherited, and collected objects.
My career spans almost seven decades; throughout that time, my work has been exhibited throughout New England and in the mid-Atlantic states and in New York and Washington DC. I have been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions and have created book and CD illustrations and covers. My work is included in private collections as well as various state and corporate collections.
Following are upcoming and current exhibits.

A collection of my poems Field Notes was published by Dogwood Press and my work has appeared in a number of poetry collections, including Potpourri, Calliope, The Red Fox Review, Earth Day Poems (CT-DEP), Stray Branch, and she was the recipient of the Mark Van Doren Poetry Award. I am the author of The Girl Below the Line, a novel of the Triangle Waist Company fire. A long-time environmental and peace activist, human right, climate justice, and social concerns strongly influence my work.
