BIO


Born in Lexington, VA, I rarely ventured outside small Southern towns until I spent my college junior year abroad. No doubt that's the reason that to this day, I am still a bit awestruck by new places--which are the inspiration for and subject of my work. Another significant autobiographical detail is that I have always pieced together layered things--clothes, quilts, silkscreen prints, books, pictures--when I wasn't at day jobs, as an academic librarian, bibliographer, writer, editor, project manager. When my children went to college, I returned to school as well, eventually 'emerging' as an artist who still makes layered things, this time in the form of photograph collages. I live with my husband in the Bay Area. My collages are in private and corporate collections, and most recently, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
