I maintain a dedicated, studio practice in Westerly, RI where I am an active member of The Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly. I also teach, share my work regularly in local galleries, contribute to a blog and nurture an ongoing collaborative art practice with a fellow artist, all of which reinforce how connections deeply affect my creative work and life.
