Collage | Monotype | Wood & Lino Block
Member of the Art Center in Dover, NH and the New Hampshire Artist Association in
I lived and worked in Massachusetts for most of my life. While working fulltime in technology I
took art classes at the Danforth Museum School, Framingham State University and the
Worcester Art Museum School. Then several years ago I moved to Portsmouth, NH and
decided to focus on my creative side. I am enjoying the Seacoast’s vibrant artist community and
its natural beauty where I get much of my inspiration for my art.
In my collages, I take disparate bits of paper and combine them to create shapes, texture,
movement, and depth. I use ‘found’ papers from old books and maps, as well as tissue paper,
pen & ink drawings and scribbles in my work. Some pieces are abstract while others showcase
the scenery around New England. My monotypes focus on the fluidity of the natural
world...flowers, landscapes, the sea and coastline. My wood & linoleum blocks are typically
printed in black to create crisp, dramatic images.
