Newfound Magazine has just published an interview in which I elucidate some thoughts behind my most recent works. Thanks to them again for the opportunity to share my work in Volume 8: Other Worlds.


Linear Thinking, a drawing show with three other women artists, opens April 28 at Shoestring Gallery in Brooklyn. I look forward to showing some of my newest collages.

I’m also happy to announce that my work is featured in the latest issue of Newfound Magazine, a literary and arts magazine that “explores how place shapes identity, imagination, and understanding.”


It was a pleasure to be invited to participate in James Scheuren’s inventive group show Traded at the Lawndale Art Center, curated from works that have been traded between artists. The show sheds light on “a fuller life around the periphery of the so-called ‘artworld’—one in which artists support and encourage one another’s work.”


Thanks to everyone who came out to the Wright Gallery for the opening of At the Edge! View some shots of the opening, and thanks to all involved for organizing such a lovely show.


Cecelia Robertson and I had such a good time showing our work at the Mom Gallery last weekend. If you weren’t able to make it, you can view installation images here. Thanks to the ladies at the Mom for helping us put together a fun show.


I look forward to sharing a selection of my most recent work in a two-person show with Cecelia Robertson at the Mom Gallery in Austin, Texas next month. Read about the show and get information about the opening here.


My work is currently on view in Albuquerque at 516 Arts as part of the exhibition Off the Charts. View a write-up about the show, and thank you to the co-curators Rhiannon Mercer and Claude Smith for inviting me to participate in this exhibition.


My work is currently on view in the show Elemental ‘Scapes in the UTSA Main Gallery in San Antonio. It is very thoughtfully curated by professor and gallery director Scott Scherer.


Join me on June 3rd in San Antonio for the opening of Elemental Scapes, a group show featuring six artists working with the drafting the contemporary landscape.


Two drawings of mine are currently on view in UT’s VAC as part of their large and ambitious Inquiry show. Also, I look forward to showing a selection of recent works at UTSA this summer, as well as 512 ARTS in Albuquerque in the fall. More details to come.
