Artist, Photographer, Educator, Alzheimer’s Advocate

“I’ve been making art since I first painted on my parents’ bedroom wall in 1960.

I worked as a photographer and educator for twenty years. I received my MFA from Marywood University in 2000.

I spent a few years on hiatus while being a caregiver for my parents and most recently my husband John.

The cohesive themes of my work are memory and time. From discarded pieces of trash in a collage to time standing still in a garden.

Over the years I have worked in a variety of photographic mediums: black and white, color film, polaroid and emulsion transfers and iPhone.

I use mixed media to combine photography with my compulsive collecting of stuff using various ephemera and trinkets to express the inner workings of the human brain, anxiety, depression and memories.”

I Hope You Enjoy My Work
