My recent artwork explores the connection between the body and water. I use bathing suits and environments associated with water to reveal the fine line between public and private, intimacy and exposure, skin and clothing.
My artwork has been widely shown in solo and group exhibitions. Venues include Editions/Artists' Book Fair in New York City, International Print Center New York, American University in Egypt, Indiana University Art Museum, and The Print Center in Philadelphia. My work is in several public collections, including the Sheldon Museum of Art, Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions, Fidelity Investments, and the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. And I have been a resident artist at Jentel, Brush Creek Foundation, Prairie Center of the Arts, Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, and KHN Center for the Arts.
I have enjoyed sharing my work and process through lectures and workshops at many institutions, including Wellesley College, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, University of Arizona, University of Wyoming, Maine College of Art. I have also held teaching appointments at Indiana University and Bowling Green State University.
I received a BFA from Bowling Green State University and an MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I currently live and work in Columbia, Missouri.
