statement

 

“…My work is an ongoing exploration into unpredictability, complexity and ambiguity….”

 

I am inspired by the badlands of the Southwest, the industrial wastelands of northern New Jersey, the dark forests of Finland, the intersections of art + science, and the far reaches of consciousness. 

As an artist and photographer I explore landscapes of profound space and random, often mythic patterning, mapping these landscapes to reveal surface topography or interiors of the body or imaginary spaces. I employ various drawing and imaging techniques, often referring to visual equivalents of software program models. I am concerned with the ambiguities and protean nature of representation.

I developed my mark-making and imaging work throughout careers in film, video, photography and digital media, exhibiting my drawings and photography since the mid-1980s. I majored in Art History and Italian at Smith College and received my M.A. in Photography and Studio Art from New York University and the International Center of Photography. I have taught at New York University, Long Island University and Santa Fe Community College. In New York City I owned a video production company which specialized in performance and experimental work and produced award-winning documentaries. My art is in private collections as well as in the New Mexico Capitol Art Foundation Collection.

I have added a new venture, Shadowlands Design, to expand my art repertoire so that more people may enjoy my work. Shadowlands Design includes wearable art and useful items that transform the ordinary. Inspired by the remote & wild badlands of the Southwest, Shadowlands Design brings you artful silk scarves, home décor & lifestyle accessories that are always collectible & make perfect gifts. Shadowlands Design, an eclectic merger of Art, Nature & Technology.
