Along with a national exhibition record, she is the recipient of numerous artist residencies, grants, and awards, including a solo show award at CEPA Gallery in 2009. She currently lives and works in Bloomsburg, PA.

I create visual narratives that resemble maps, graphs, and timelines based on personal experiences and significant life events. I plot my past as an exploration to expose what is hidden and what is revealed – much like a scientific researcher collects data to make new discoveries. What I hope to reveal is not an ultimate truth, but a deeper understanding of the way we accept our own fields of memory by exposing and strengthening the connections we have within ourselves and with each other.
