I am stirred by travel and the land. My oil and watercolor paintings reference the natural world: weather patterns, tectonic shifts, fields in bloom. Sometimes I paint big so that I feel overwhelmed by my own paintings, as if at the foot of a mountain I wish to ascend. Sometimes I paint small in order to remember a quality of light or color, a sound, texture, or feeling experienced while doing something simple like talking an afternoon walk or looking out my window. While firmly rooted in my home state of Connecticut, I spent formative years living in Southern California and abroad, and traveling coast to coast and country to country. These experiences of foreign lands, open spaces, and wild topography continue to inspire my paintings.

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York (2005), and a Master of Arts in Painting from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland (2010). I am a past Rotary Scholar (2010) a recent recipient of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation Arist Trust Award (2019). In May of 2020 she was awarded the Artists Respond Grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts/Connecticut Office of the Arts.
