received her B.A. in Graphic Art and Dance from
Bennington College in Vermont. Afterwards, at The Pratt Graphic
Art Center in New York City, she focused her printmaking on stone
lithography and etching. These media were used to portray subject
matter deeply personal to her life: the New Jersey landscape
of marsh, brambles and trees and figures of dancers. She continued
to perform and choreograph for her own dance company throughout
New York and New Jersey.
Later, she held the
position of Associate Professor of Dance at Grand Valley State
University, Michigan for 15 years. Upon moving to Santa Barbara
in 1990, she returned to printmaking, watercolor and choreography.
work is primarily process oriented. Interest is in the actual
act of placing the ink on the plate, manipulating the image,
transferring marks, lines, texture and use of stencil to gain
the illusion of depth.
She is also governed
by her dual profession as choreographer and filmmaker. Constructing
and dividing space, inventing bodily movement, and structured
play all contribute to shape her creative surge.
