Biography: The award-winning artist lives and paints happily in Washington DC. Her artworks on paper and artworks on canvas are collected by museums (Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh, work on paper; Erie Museum of Art, Erie PA, work on paper; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, artists book; Museum of Modern Art, New York, artist book; Victoria & Albert Museum, London, artists book), corporations (Deloitte Touche, IBM, Shearson Lehman Brothers, Inc., Hart, Schaffner and Marx, HealthSouth), and private collectors. Her artworks have been exhibited in nearly 200 group exhibitions of regional, national, and international art. Her solo exhibitions include the Jane Haslem Gallery and the Arnold & Porter law firm in Washington DC. She has presented at conferences on art and mathematics and authored articles for electronic and print publications. She has received critical acclaim. "Her highly organized works are decorative in the best sense of that word", writes David Carrier. Another critic, Phyllis Jacobs adds, "she composes the random natural world to make a new, exquisitely crafted order." She holds degrees from the Art Institute of Chicago (B.F.A.), Carnegie-Mellon University (B.A.), and Case Western Reserve University (M.S.). Additional biographical information may be found in Who's Who in American Art. Artist Statement My hope is that my artworks will awaken, in the viewer, the same sense of life's joys and possibilities which I feel as I create in my studio. I paint and make sculpture to express my delight in seeking visual relationships and finding new connections within simple geometric shapes. The discovery of harmony and symmetry leads to peace of mind. When I complete an artwork, I have a sense that there is, indeed, order and beauty in this seemingly chaotic world. All of my artworks are created from archival materials, such as 100% rag paper made in France.
