I have been a printmaker for 35 years. First introduced to etching in college, I loved the various steps involved in creating a metal plate. The ability to make multiple works of art also appealed to my practical side. After college I apprenticed with Sabra Field and learned the art of woodcuts. I was insprired to return to school after two years of working and earned a masters in printmaking from UMass in Amherst.
I returned to Vermont and waitressed briefly to pay the bills. I started to make paper earrings and began to sell them to customers when they saw me wearing them in the restaurant. This began the jewelry business and thankfully ended my waitressing career. During this time I applied to the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough NH and was awarded a six week printmaking residency.
I moved to Huntington Vermont 23 years ago and renovated an old barn next to my house which now serves as a beautiful studio. My time is divided between making woodcuts, jewelry and pastels which all focus on the Vermont landscape.
