Two important events have influenced my recent work. First, I moved from Philadelphia to the Hudson Valley where I live in a stone cottage surrounded by mountains, forests, fields and streams. Secondly, the coronavirus pandemic happened. Like many, I think about life and death and the need to breath a lot more than I used to. Because I worked as an operating room nurse for several years, I am sensitive to the fragile relationship between our physical bodies and our ability to experience and live in the world. Currently, my painting and sculptures focus on a very primal, sensuous, embodied experience of the environment around me.
