"The work is based on a poem by Charles Simic, Henri Rousseau's Bed: “I took my bed into the forest
How peaceful, I thought,
When the full moon came out……”"
"I happily have always been an art educator and an artist; one informs the other. Until three years ago I was an Associate Professor at Lesley University
(Cambridge, MA), in the Graduate School where I trained visual arts teachers in the Art Education Program. My main interest is using art making to enhance literacy skills. I also taught classroom teachers how to use visual arts in their teaching practice. I have also taught at Massachusetts College of Art, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I continue as an adjunct at Lesley University as well as doing consultation of various K-12 schools.
I have an MFA from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. I have furthered studied over the years at Penland School of Art (North Carolina), Zea Mays Printmaking (Florence, MA), Fine Arts Work Center
(Provincetown, MA), Provincetown Art Association and Museum
(Provincetown, MA).
I am the director and curator and one of ten artists that exhibit at the Off Main Gallery in Wellfleet, MA."
