Originally from Greenwich Village, NYC-I grew up around a vibrant diverse community where my mother owned a vintage clothing store for 40 years. Being in that environment, influenced my aesthetic. I make images often nostalgic, brightly colored, using vintage fabric and juvenile in style. I am very interested in how things look from being decayed, aged and worn.
I taught art in kindergarten for 16 years and the looseness, naivety and freedom of the children's art made a big impression on my style of work.
Throughout my childhood I spent a lot of time sewing alongside my mother and her seamstresses that were continuously making clothes from recycled vintage and antique clothing. This has stayed with me through my art and now my “Bathing Beauties” on vintage linen.
I work in a variety of mediums: printmaking, sculpture, painting, sewing and drawing. I am constantly making images.
