In both word and images, she’s interested in exploring the relationships between our human imagination and our the planet, the other creatures we share it with,including ourselves, the migration patterns that keep the ball rolling and the barriers we erect. The sculptures are both endearing and scary, human and animal, gestural and mummified, while the characteers in the novels also exist with apparent contractions evading resolution.
Throughout a long career, she’s exhibited locally and internationally, including the Netherlands, Japan, In her home state, the Shelburne and Sullivan Museums. She's collaborated with other artists, published one novel and is working on another.
