2023 Update

Wow! Friends and lovers of art, 2023 is going to be a blast!

First, I am a featured artist on Now Be Here’s social media accounts (see Facebook and Instagram). It is a wonderful organization dedicated to promoting women artists. I am honored, excited, and having fun being featured on their social media feeds.


My work is featured in a group exhibition at The Phillips Collection—Pour, Tear, Carve, Material Possibilities in the Collection, from March 18 -May 14, 2023. Material Possibilities considers how artists have utilized historic and contemporary art materials to act as conduits of meaning. The show is culled from the Phillips’ permanent collection, and my featured etching is Journey Thru Migration.

Look out for more from me this year, including “Requiem for a Numbers Player”—the movie!

"I'm so excited!"
