As an installation artist and painter, I have worked with many materials. For my sand painting
series, I have created nearly 1000 spontaneous, ephemeral sand paintings and currently creating similar
works on canvas
My work explores the storage and transmission of memory, myth and experience. I’m interested in
mapping our very human engagement with the intersections of real and imagined experience
using performance, video, sculpture and installation.
My recent body of work uses cut paper layered with soot and encaustic to trace the gradual
reconstruction of a city after a natural disaster. These salvaged materials are reassembled into
forms that are both timeless and transient.
"Her compartmentalization of expressive figures is a language she intentionally re-arranges in
order to explore the possibilities of syntactical harmonies, counterpoised in both hue and gesture."

I have lived in the neighborhood fo over 20 years working as a photojournalist and Internet
entrepreneur, documenting the change in South Brooklyn. These images are from my exhibit, "25
Years of Gowanus: As it WAS, As it IS"
