My photo-based artwork focuses on political and social issues and is grounded in community dialogue. After earning an MFA in photography, I taught at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, in Pittsburgh, PA for several years where I collaborated on public art projects that included billboards, community gardens, and transit bus posters. I spent two years developing a solo art exhibit that explored political issues in women’s healthcare, Warnings that toured nationally for ten years to over 40 galleries. Currently I work as a senior web designer at UMass Boston.

The artists, students, and educators at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild inspired and shaped my approach to arts, education and design. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to collaborate and learn from so many amazing people.
