Liquid Rhythms - Sculptural Drawings and Paintings in Resin
Water is Life
Some have called my art "Liquid Rhythms".
I am an experimenter at heart. What you will find here is a collection of variations on the theme of water and memory.
For more than a decade, I have worked primarily with resins and water concepts in one form or another combining
these non-traditional, industrial materials with traditional art mediums where inventiveness pushes my art constantly
into new forms. The interesting thing about combining these materials is that often I end up inventing processes
and forms no one else does. The resulting work can be deceptively simple but is often very intricate and involved.
I like the contrast in my work between the quiet, the bold and the ethereal. My art practice includes exhibiting in
galleries and working closely with many interior designers and art placement firms creating large and small scale
commissions for corporate offices, restaurants, hotel lobbies, hospitals and family homes of all sizes.
The long and short of it all
For years I juggled a triple life of Artist, Gallery Director/Curator at two galleries and a family including my pretty
awesome husband Stephen and my two equally awesome daughters Jenna and Lucy. It worked for a while and
I honestly didn't sleep much. I was convinced I could do it all until one day my body said "NO!" and shut down quite
dramatically. In 2015 and 2016 between the demand for my own artwork and major health issues, I had to make a tough
decision. As much as I loved directing and curating at Skylight Gallery NYC and at The Beacon Room at BAU, I knew it was time to simplify life and concentrate exclusively on my own art practice, family and myself. I had no doubt it was the right choice and I couldn't be happier about this decision. I am a full time mixed media artist, wife and mom of two creative daughters.
A bit about my background
I grew up in Palm Springs, CA with my grandparents in a retirement condo. My Granny Freda was the tiniest but mightiest woman I ever knew, all 90 lbs of her. She is why I do what I do. Everyone needs a Freda in their corner pushing them to follow their heart. Thank you, Grandma, for believing in art and me.
I graduated with honors from the University of Redlands with a double major in Art and Art History. There I studied with noted Los Angeles based figurative painter John Nava and studied with Leo Castelli artist, Sal Scarpitta, at MICA's Mount Royal Graduate School of Art in Baltimore where I received my MFA degree. After living in the Hudson River Valley for many years and working in Cold Spring and Beacon, NY, I now make my home along the Connecticut coast.
My artwork has been included in over 300 national and international galleries, universities and museums.

In 2015 and 2016 the demand for my artwork grew to the point that I had to simplify my life. I loved being director and curator of Skylight Gallery NYC and curator at The Beacon Room at BAU Gallery. I also loved being a prolific artist, a wife and mother of two wonderful daughters. I just had too many plates spinning and something had to give. I made the tough decision to leave my gallery and take a years sabbatical from BAU. The reality is I have always been an artist first and being successful enough to be able to follow my heart and concentrate exclusively on creating art is
MY DREAM COME TRUE.
My artwork has been included in over 300 exhibitions in national and international exhibitions in museums, universities and galleries.
