My sculpture and installations explore memory, loss and my connections to nature. My collaborative work has recently been fueled by environmental concerns, particularly in relationship to climate change.

I am represented by Brenda Taylor Gallery in Boston, and Sidetracks Gallery in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and have an affiliation with LG Tripp Gallery in Philadelphia.
