As a painter, she is inspired to paint places and things that are imbued with a poetry which comes from not being noticed. She finds the traditionally unbeautiful is as singular to life as anything commonly recognized as beautiful or meaningful. Her goal is to transform these subjects into something that everyone can appreciate.
She has had solo exhibits in New York City at The Carter Burden Gallery, The Bowery Gallery, Walter Wickiser Gallery, the New York Studio School and upstate at the Atwater Gallery, Sharada Gallery, Marianne Corville Gallery and The Mabbitsville Gallery. Group Exhibitions include: The 2017 New York Studio School Alumni Show, the Julia Saul Gallery (curated by Isaac Mizrahi) and the Dacia Gallery.
She holds an MFA from the Yale School of Drama, and is a recent graduate of the New York Studio School Certificate Program.
