Albuquerque, New Mexico has been my home for the past twenty-two years, but I am originally from the State of Maryland. While living in Maryland I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Towson State Teachers College (now Towson University), and a Masters of Education Degree from The Johns Hopkins University. After finishing these degrees, I got the opportunity to study art at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where I concentrated on printmaking. While living in North Carolina, a group of artists friends and I founded Center Gallery, a women’s artist gallery where we exhibited our art and provided educational programs for the community.
Later, moving to Rochester, New York, I studied Video Art at the Visual Studies Workshop and combined video art with printmaking. After a few years, I taught video production at the Visual Studies Workshop at the University of Rochester.
As a photographer, I like to capture scenes and relationships that exist only through reflections. I search for reflections that merge old with new, past with present, and interior spaces with exterior spaces. I am particularly interested in reflections that while combining people, objects and places create a collage of imagined encounters.
