About me

I am Martha’s Vineyard based painter, sculptor, and flower farmer. All art is made about the artist's identity.  No matter how far the artist tries to get away from this, there is no way around it.  Each thing that we make is influenced by everything I see, feel, hear, think. I use this to my advantage.  In my work, I question the way we look at ourselves, and thus make the viewer question their own interactions with my work. I work with my own body and experiences to create pieces that question identity, and how we think about the idea of identity in today’s culture.
